Directions to Rustenberg Wines from Cape Town
On the N1:
Travel North from Cape Town towards Paarl on the N1 Freeway. Take Exit 39 on your left, indicating Stellenbosch (R304). Turn right at the off-ramp towards Stellenbosch and drive approximately 13 km until entering Stellenbosch and reaching the intersection with the R44. This intersection indicates Klapmuts (R44) to your left. Turn left at this intersection and right at the very next intersection onto the R310 (Helshoogte Pass Road). After approximately 2km you’ll reach a set of Traffic Lights (the Fire Brigade will be on your right and the Simonsrust shopping complex will be in front and to the right). Turn left at these lights and go straight up the road, past the Engen Petrol Station and the Friendly 7-11 (supermarket) on your left, straight across the small circle, until reaching a T-junction. Turn right at the T-junction, proceed up towards the Simonsberg Mountain and the farm is clearly sign-posted on your left.
On the N2:
Travel East towards Cape Town International Airport on the N2, heading towards Somerset West/Strand. Proceed past the airport and look out for Exit 33 indicating Baden Powell Drive (R310). Take this exit and turn left onto Baden Powell Drive (R310). Proceed straight along this road for approximately 13km, passing Spier Hotel and Restaurant complex (on your right) until you reach a T-junction with Neethlingshof Winery towards the left front of you. Turn right at this T-junction and proceed towards Stellenbosch. On entering the town, proceed straight past Distell on your right and eventually past the railway station on your left where you’ll meet up at a T-junction with the R44. Proceed left here, cross over one set of traffic lights and turn right into Merriman Avenue at the next set of Traffic Lights. Follow Merriman Avenue crossing a few traffic intersections until reaching a big traffic circle. Take the first exit left off this circle (Cluver Street) and proceed up towards the Simonsberg Mountain. Continue straight over two sets of traffic lights (the Fire Brigade will be on your left at the second set). Enter the quaint village of Ida’s Valley and go past the Engen Petrol Station and the Friendly 7-11 (supermarket) on your left, straight across the small circle, until reaching a T-junction.
