Route 62 in Ashton

Platform 62

Today's series of photos were taken a few months ago on a rainy day in the little town of Ashton, South Africa. It's one of the stops on Route 62, which is fast earning the reputation as the world's longest wine route!

The Platform 62 Wine Boutique is one of the most extensive wine shops in the Western Cape with over 500 local wines and some of the best brandies of this area on sale. Some of the brandies have even been rated as the best in the world!

Silver Threads
Empowering unemployed and elderly women

The Silver Threads sewing project in Ashton is one of the most successful projects in the area. They have been given their own space at Platform 62. This prime position has helped to create a lot of interest in the women’s work.

Route 62 Farm Stall

There's a neat farm stall on the way into Ashton from Robertson. It has plenty of gifts and local wines for purchase. It also has a small restaurant with seating inside, but if you're in a hurry, then there are also snacks and such that you can buy while on the go.
