Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just a lover of natural beauty, you’ll be swept up in the splendour of the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek countryside with their tell-tale Cape Dutch architecture and rolling vineyards as we showcase a few different wining and dining experiences.
Set a leisurely pace as you leave the coast behind and head north towards wine country and the first of the handpicked wineries on the outskirts of the Cape Winelands. A wine tour is undoubtedly a visual feast, but your taste buds are the real hero. After all, not all wines are created equal and Pinotage stands head and shoulders above the rest.
The paddock-to-plate partnership between winemakers, chefs, artisans and local producers rounds out the sensory journey. In arguably South Africa’s most picturesque wine growing area, vintners pair their smooth reds and crisp whites with local produce – cheese, olive oil, biltong (cured meat) and artisan chocolate – in a delicate-yet-innovative partnership that enhances the wines’ flavours.
Your guide will uncover the mysteries, separate your Cabernets from your Cape Ruby and help you navigate the flavour profiles with ease. Wander your way past grapes on the vine and green valleys, to top-tier wine farms – Fairview, Babylonstoren, La Bri and Hidden Valley.
South Africa’s wine industry is like a well-cellared red. It is robust; its flavour profiles have harmonised and, with the passing of time, the product improves with age. Let the tasting begin…
Alternatives: apart from a traditional wine tasting tour we can also offer a Wine tram tour, a bike wine tasting tour or a tour with picknick lunch.
We love wine and wine tastings. To name some of our favorite wine tastings: Creation Wines (Hermanus), Avondale (Biodynamic), Warwick, Falsebay Wines, Annadale (old rugby player), Spier (nice for kids), Maastricht Wines. We can pre book them in advance.
