WINELANDS TOUR (HALF OR FULL DAY)
The winelands along the Cape offer some of the most exquisite South African country views you could hope to find. The tour includes a trip to the country’s principal wine routes of Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
The day begins in Paarl where guests are invited to take in the splendour of the Valley, the pristine blue sky, the rolling vineyards. Here visitors enjoy a wine tasting and cellar tour at one of the local estates.
From Paarl, visitors are taken north-west to the beautiful village of Franschhoek, near the Drakenstein Mountains. A memorial in the town commemorates the arrival of early settlers who helped develop the wines sought after by Napoleon, Bismark and royalty such as Edward VII, the Prince of Wales. Here the tour makes a stop for lunch and another wine tasting at the venue’s exquisite vineyard.
The trip then continues on to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country’s wine region. In 1679 Simon van der Stel recognised the fertility of this long valley on the banks of the Eerste River as ideal for successful vineyards. Here guests are invited to enjoy a final wine tasting before returning to Cape Town.
This tour may also run in reverse order and can be conducted on a private or schedule basis.
