Imbibe some of South Africa’s top wines paired with cheeses, olives and chocolate on this full-day fun and informative wine tour of the Cape winelands. Also included is a true Cape Townian a la carte lunch at one of the vineyards.
Uncork the Cape winelands and get drunk on its rich history, culture, and scenic vistas on a full-day trip with a guide who takes the terror out of terroir. Your journey begins in the Paarl wine region, famous for its cheese and wine tastings and great views. You’ll then meander to the Franschhoek wine region – a historic French enclave and granddaddy of South African viticulture with stunning mountain views. Then on to student-settled Stellenbosch for home-cloned Pinotage and award-winning farms.
Also included is a delicious a la carte lunch with vegetarian options. From full-bodied tales with complex twists – like a 1688 French-run slave farm turned 21st century community driven wine project – to light and fruity fables, Bruce and his guides will keep you entertained. Travel along Cape Town’s high roads and back roads tasting and learning about South Africa’s bubbly Cap Classique, heady ports, sweet dessert wines and plenty of red and white wines.
