13 Sep Wine Tour of the Cape Winelands
South Africa´s wine history dates back to 1659. Join me on my favourite vineyard tour through the Cape Winelands and experience a broad spectrum of iconic estates and local wineries.
For me the Cape Winelands are one of the most beautiful areas in South Africa, boasting a collection of historic towns specialised in wine making. When I first went on a wine tour in the Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl area, the landscape took my breath away. Besides that, I was amazed by the variety of wine makers and their outstanding wines.
Going on a wine tour through the Cape Winelands is a must while in South Africa. I have tested many tours but eventually I can honestly recommend this full day wine tour of a South African tour operator:
What makes this tour special to me:
- All farms on this route are meticulously chosen so that you will experience a broad spectrum of iconic estates.
- You will also visit smaller family run farms, which are only known to locals and whose wines you rarely find anywhere else in the world. On those farms you get to meet the winemakers who are more than happy to share their stories with you.
- You get to pair artisanal chocolate (fair trade accredited) and locally produced world class cheeses with award winning wines. I have learnt the cheese and chocolate enhance the flavours and make you appreciate the true beauty of the wine.
- Within a Cellar Tour you get to sample wine directly out of the oak barrels.
- The guides are super professional and will teach you all about the country and wine history.
What is included in the Cape Wineland tour:
- 4 or 5 wine tastings (depends on the tour) including cheese and chocolate pairing
- Super yummy lunch
- Vineyard & Cellar Tour
- Local Treats
- Pick up and drop off
- Guide and Transport
