Full description

Uncork the Cape winelands and get drunk on its rich history, culture, and scenic vistas on a day trip from Cape Town 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.

We had the pleasure of visiting 4 wine estates. Muratie Wine Estate - very pleasant and historical visit to one of the oldest vineyards. Very much preserved the architecture and how the business is run and has been passed on. The wine tasting experience was very informative and educational in various aspects. The gentleman conducting the wine tasting was very enthusiatic! Thumbs up Le Pommier Wine Estate - young, innovative wine estate that is trying to create wines that are pleasant to the palate of most people. Very unpretentious wine tasting experience that leaves you richer than you first came in. Their rose was delicious! The lunch at the estate was lovely! Eikehof Winery - we visited after lunch and it was fun and interesting. The owners were wonderful hosts! Fairview Wine and Cheese - This was simply fun! I will definately foloow their lead next time my husband and I have some cheese, crakers and wine!

From beginning to end this was a fun and pleasurable trip. Nick, our guide, was friendly , engaging and knowledgeable. The wineries we visited were varied and the wine tastings at each place were good. One, in particular, had amazing views and the chance to view springboks, zebra and wildebeest. We had several choices for lunch and each dish was presented well and the food was tasty and plentiful.

Great wine tour. We visited four wineries and sampled a wide variety of wines, all in beautiful locations. We particularly enjoyed the Muratie winery and cheese pairings at Fairview. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative, and we enjoyed being able to do the tasting with a group of other people on the van, who were all very nice.
