Edelweiss Laboratories is situated in the southern Cape Peninsula of Cape Town. The beautiful vineyards of Uitsig and Klein Constantia with their famous restaurants and wine tasting facilities are no more than 10 minutes away from the factory, and the beautiful beaches of Muizenberg are just 2 minutes away. At its northern end Table Mountain looms over the valley and provides forested cover for long Sunday strolls in the warm summer months. In winter, it drives the winds from the Atlantic up over it, bringing the traditional cold, wet winters that are a feature of the Cape.
