The Devon Valley Hotel can be located within the heart of the Devon Valley. It is a 20 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport and a 35 minute drive via the N1 or N2 to central Cape Town.
Devon Valley is a new Ward within the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin. It lies to the west and alongside the village of Stellenbosch. Through it runs a tiny river, the Veldwachtersrivier, or Shepherds Creek, which joins up with the Eerste Rivier (First River). The valley is open to the south and demarcated by low hills on the other sides. Most of the vineyards are red.
The area also draws visitors to the charming Devon Valley Hotel, which markets its own wine called Sylvan Vale, made by Mark Carmichael-Green. Visitors can also stay at the Sugarbird Manor guesthouse.
The eight wine producers in the valley have recently formed the Devon Valley Vintners' Association. It's charter commits the members to practices that benefit the community, the environment and the quality of the valley's produce. All wineries that use grapes from the valley are entitled to label these as 'Wine of Origin Devon Valley'.
