Whether you’re an avid wine connoisseur or simply appreciate the beauty of nature, the Stellenbosch, Paarl, and Franschhoek countryside will captivate you with their stunning Cape Dutch architecture and picturesque vineyards. We are delighted to offer a range of exceptional wining and dining experiences in these regions.
As you embark on your journey towards wine country, leaving the coastal landscapes behind, take your time and savor the scenic drive. We have carefully selected a collection of exquisite wineries located on the outskirts of the Cape Winelands to showcase the best of the region. While a wine tour is a feast for the eyes, it is your taste buds that will truly be the heroes of this adventure. Not all wines are created equal, and among them, Pinotage stands tall and proud.
In the Cape Winelands, a unique partnership emerges between winemakers, chefs, artisans, and local producers, providing a holistic sensory journey. The vintners in this breathtaking wine-growing area expertly pair their velvety reds and refreshing whites with local delicacies, such as cheese, olive oil, biltong (cured meat), and artisan chocolates. This delicate-yet-innovative collaboration elevates the flavors of the wines, creating a truly unforgettable experience.
Throughout the tour, your knowledgeable guide will unravel the mysteries of winemaking, helping you discern the subtle nuances between different varieties, such as Cabernets and Cape Ruby. They will effortlessly guide you through the flavor profiles, making the exploration of each wine an effortless pleasure. As you meander through vineyards and verdant valleys, you’ll visit esteemed wine farms, including Fairview, Babylonstoren, La Bri, and Hidden Valley.
South Africa’s wine industry can be likened to a meticulously cellared red wine. It is robust, with its flavor profiles perfectly harmonized. With the passage of time, the quality of the product continues to improve, much like a well-aged wine. Let the tasting adventure begin as you indulge in the diverse and exceptional wines on offer.
In addition to the traditional wine tasting tour, we also offer alternative experiences to suit different preferences. You can opt for a Wine Tram tour, allowing you to enjoy the scenery while visiting renowned wineries. For those seeking a more active experience, our bike wine tasting tour combines cycling with wine appreciation. Lastly, we offer a tour with a picnic lunch, providing a delightful gastronomic experience amidst the vineyards.
