Witzenberg on a budget: Taste and drink platteland cuisine

Just want to indulge in some tasty goodness without stretching your wallet? Take a break in the towns of Ceres, Tulbagh and Wolseley that will thrill all the senses. 

Wines, chocolates, homegrown ingredients and food for the soul – the district of Witzenberg knows how to entertain visitors.

Surrounded by the Winterhoek Mountains, you can either splash out in the sunshine during the warmer months, or cosy up with a loved one at a fireplace in the frostier season.
