Rawsonville
Rawsonville is a small wine growing and farming community in the Breede River Valley of the Western Cape province of South Africa. The town is located in a scenic portion of the valley on the eastern flanks of the Du Toitskloof Mountains. The climate is mediterranean, with cool, rainy winters and warm, dry summers. Due to its more inland location, winters can sometimes get frosty, with heavy snowfalls sometimes falling on the surrounding high-ground, summers are generally pleasant, although some February and March days can reach 38°C or higher. The area is known for the Breedekloof Wine Route with its 22 Cellars and Wine Estates and also hosts the annual Breedekloof extreme sports festival. It is 90 km east of Cape Town.
