Robertson the home of Strictly Coffee

Posted by:strictlycoffee onJanuary 21, 2013

Strictly Coffee is very proud of its heritage and we would like to share with you a little about the wonderful town we are situated in, the beautiful town of Robertson.  The town was founded in 1853 and named after the Scottish Dutch Reformed Church Minister, Dr William Robertson.

Situated in the fertile Robertson Valley, farming and wagon building were the town’s original industries. However, after the Second Anglo-Boer War of 1899, the wagon building industry collapsed when the railways took over the transport of all goods.

Robertson subsequently became for its ostrich farming, but this industry collapsed as well shortly after World War I and thus the farmers of the area switched to wine and fruit farming. Later, several successful racehorse stud farms were founded. Agriculture remains the mainstay of the town’s economy up to the present day.

Known as the “ small town with a big heart”, you will be pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome which awaits you in this quaint country town.  Situated in the shadow of the majestic Langeberg mountains with the Breede River as its life blood, Robertson is the western to The Heart of Route 62, only 1 ½ hours leisurely drive from Cape Town.

With 150 years of history, Robertson has grown into one of the most attractive Cape Winelands towns. Victorian buildings, jacaranda-lined streets, rose boarded vineyards, columns of red and yellow cannas as well as bright bougainvilleas all form the back drop to this delightful town.

Our region may be best known for its wines but the variety of attractions, activities, accommodation, and culinary delights on offer – combined with spectacular scenery and the warm hospitality of the people, makes it a superb getaway.  No matter what time of year and no matter whom the visitor, Robertson ensures visitors an unforgettable stay.

National Monuments include the Pink Church (1859), the Museum (1860), the Edwardian No 12 Piet Retief Street (1904), the Victorian No 59 Van Reenen Street (1914) and the Powder House.
