Full Day Wine Tour
A beautiful day spent exploring the picturesque landscapes of Stellenbosch or Franschhoek. With 5 different wine farms on offer, including some of the world famous farms and some small privately owned ones with their own unique culture, you cannot miss this great wine, cheese and chocolate tasting opportunity. Lunch is provided in the form of a traditional South African meal, while many of the wine farms offer beautiful delicatessen type foods. Learn about the wine making process, visit a cellar, take a walk through the vineyards. This full day wine tour really does have it all.
Start the morning off with a guided drive through historic Stellenbosch and onto our first farm for a cellar tour and wine & chocolate pairing. Our 2nd farm is a boutique wine estate for intimate cheese & wine pairing with the wine maker when she is around. We head over the stunning Stellenbosch mountains, to the cuisine capital of SA, Franschhoek. Here we learn how the French Huguenots settled in this valley and influenced South Africa’s wine history. This is followed by a tasting at an award-winning estate and then a beautiful lunch. In Franschhoek you will have the chance to walk off your meal, by strolling down the main road. For our last stop we visit a farm situated at the foot of the mountains for yet another world class wine tasting. Dined and merry, we head back to Cape Town and arrive at about 5PM.
