WINE TOURS:  FULL DAY

Jan Van Riebeeck planted the first vines in 1655 not far from Cape Town and today we are a major producer of quality wines. Tour through our world-famous wine regions with beautiful scenery, excellent food and outstanding wines:

Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa and was featured in the New York Times as one of the “must see” wine routes of the world.  “Stellies” has a rich history.  It has an atmosphere where art, music and theatre reign but is best known for its internationally acclaimed wines.

Franschoek is surrounded by the beautiful Groot Drakenstein Mountains and offers breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, and the finest wines and is regarded as the culinary capital of the Cape because of its world class cuisine.

Paarl is the 2nd largest town in the Western Cape and 3rd oldest town in South Africa and lies on the banks of the Berg River.  On both sides of the Berg River close to Paarl there is many wine farms which eight is estates and eleven is co-operatives supporting the industry. The only language monument in the world, the Afrikaans Language Monument is situated on the Southern slopes of Paarl Mountain and is constructed of Paarl granite.

Hermanus is situated along the Southern coastline and you can explore the Walker Bay wine region.  The proximity to the ocean and the cool winds that this brings to the vines and grapes makes for a longer period of maturation.

Durbanville Valley is nestled in the Tygerberg Hills.  It consists of 12 wineries, each offering the finest in wines and complemented with some of the best fine dining restaurants and intimate country kitchens in the region.  It is fast becoming a favourite wine valley due to its view over Table Mountain and the Atlantic coastline.

Constantia Valley has the Table Mountain National Park bordering to the west.  It is one of South Africa’s oldest wine-making regions going back to the late 1600s where Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Cape, purchase this land and is now divided into 8 wine-making farms, several of whom have won major awards for their wine products.

Robertson Wine Valley is situated on Route 62 and cupped between 2 mountains with the Breede River running through it.  Endless exploration awaits you.  It is somewhat different from the others.  They have Underground Vault tours & Tasting, Grappa & Eau de Vie Tasting, Witblits & Mampoer stoking, River Cruises with a picnic basket and so much more.
