Wine Tour With Wine Making
As you depart Cape Town for a full day of wine and food, you will arrive at the first wine estate. Before you start tasting wine, you will explore the process of wine and champagne making on a guided cellar tour. Afterwards, you will begin the tasting with a quick master class in wine etiquette paired with local artisan cheeses, fresh fruit and other snacks. The next stop is at one of South Africa’s top winemakers, where you will taste high-quality wines — followed by a delicious lunch, which is served at a stunning wine estate with magnificent views of Table Mountain. The final wine tasting is at one of the oldest wine estates in South Africa. Here you enjoy exceptional wines and a couple dessert wines. After we make a quick stop at the historic shop named Oom Samie se Winkel for some souvenirs and snacks. The tour ends with a wine blending experience where you can blend and bottle your own bottle of wine to bring home and brag to your friends about.
