South Africa's Winelands on Google Street View

update (07 Feb 2012): Google has added five Western Cape wineries to its popular Street View service in Google Maps. The five new wineries – Boekenhoutskloof and Môreson in Franschhoek, Groot Constantia in Cape Town, Hartenberg, Rustenberg Wines and Warwick in Stellenbosch – bring to 30 the number of wineries now available in Street View.

South Africa has got the most comprehensive database of winelands imagery in the world. Google launched Street View in South Africa in June 2010 and now extended its street view imagery content by 19 South African wineries. South Africa's vinyards are also the very first ever covered vinyards on Steet View. Such a great way to explore the winelands before you are actually heading of to South Africa! Congrats SA Wines!

How do I use Google Street View?
  • Go to http://maps.google.com
  • type the address into the maps search bar, or zoom into where you want to go
  • drag the orange "Pegman" icon on the left-hand side of the map onto a blue highlighted street (the blue highlighted streets are the ones google has imagery of)
