The Nedbank Green Wine Route, produced with Cape Town Green Map, is an international first.
“Yours is the first Green Wine Map! Thank you and best of luck with the project” – Wendy E. Brawer, Founding Director, Green Map System.
If you were to visit the winelands today, it would not be unusual to find ducks and geese foraging for snails, horse-drawn ploughs working the land, more indigenous than alien plant life, and farms with conservation educational programmes.
These 10 estates have been specially selected because of their rich cultural and creative associations. Discover what makes these estates historically significant and creatively dynamic.
You can pick up a copy of the Cape Town Green Map, featuring the Nedbank Green Wine Route, at Cape Town Tourism Visitor Information Centres, or you can view and download it here.
Nedbank are proud of their status as a ‘green and caring bank’, and are committed to further entrenching this reputation in helping realise a sustainable future.

The Nedbank Green Wine Awards
The Nedbank Green Wine Awards have been running since 2009. The purpose of the awards is to elevate the quality of wines, encourage awareness and protection of biodiversity in winemaking operations. It also serves as a catalyst for more wine-makers to integrate environmental sustainability into every aspect of their craft. No matter your taste in wine, whether you prefer a crisp Sauvignon or a spicy, full-bodied Shiraz, if you care about the environment, you’ll be interested in these ‘green’ wines and the producers that go the extra mile to farm for the future.
