FNB Wine 2 Whales


FNB Wines 2 Whales
For more than a decade, the FNB Wines2Whales has delivered world-class mountain biking, taking riders from the wines of Lourensford Wine Estate to the whales of Hermanus via some of the Western Cape’s most loved and enjoyed trails.

In 2021, the FNB Wines2Whales is switching back on itself, and riders will tackle an all-new adventure that sees the route roll away from the whales and head inland towards the wines. It has been named the FNB Wines2Whales Switchback.

Aside from the staples of the FNB W2W of years prior, like mid-race wine stops, Woolworths catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner, free bike washes, and, of course, the world-class trails and times, the 2021 FNB Wines2Whales Switchback promises even more reasons for riders to secure an entry.

Wine Village Hermanus Presenting FNB Wines 2 Whales Wine Collection – The legendary journey that began 23 years ago.
Fueled by his passion for wine, sports and the outdoors, Paul saw the untamed beauty and hidden potential of his surroundings with the opening of Wine Village-Hermanus in 1998.

Catering to both trail running and mountain biking, he established the first and only trails in the Hemel-en-Aarde used by ABSA Cape Epic and numerous other adventure sports associations.

Paul was privileged to be one of the original volunteers at the famed ABSA Cape Epic and took part himself.

As an owner of the largest privately owned South African wine shop in the world, Wine Village Hermanus, John Kriegler of FNB W2W asked Paul to curate a wine collection that would reflect the beauty and splendour of the much-anticipated FNB W2W 2021.

Wine Village Hermanus is proud to partner with FNB W2W in presenting the 2021 Riders Pride Collection. Consisting of a carefully selected wine collection that reflects the diversity and beauty of the 2021 route.
