Full description

Be prepared for a day filled with wine tastings, food, and wine pairings with local South African flavours, a cellar tour, breathtaking views of the passing scenery, century-old Cape Dutch homes & take a stroll through vineyards with incredible Mountain views. Discover popular Cape Winelands routes- Paarl, Franschhoek, and Stellenbosch with a visit to 3 different wineries for tastings of various wines, cheese, biltong, and chocolate pairings. Start the tour with a scenic drive to the countryside. Visit one of Paarl's best attractions and see a unique goat tower. Take a seat at the custom-designed wine tasting pods and learn about the wineries' rich history and exceptional wines. With a dedicated host, you'll be guided through the tasting of 6 different wines that are all beautifully paired with gourmet cheeses. Spend free time browsing through the deli and gift shop. Next, head to the little French corner found nestled between rolling meadows and centuries-old vineyards that stretch out towards distant towering mountains. Franschhoek is justifiably world-famous for its superb local cuisine and award-winning wine, yet, still retains a heavy French influence. Along the way, stop over to Drakenstein, the prison that once held former President Nelson Mandela. Get the chance to stand in the very place where Mandela took his first steps outside of prison as a free man and admire the larger-than-life-size bronze statue of Mandela. Delve deeper into winemaking philosophy with a fun and insightful cellar tour, and taste Pinot Noir and Chardonnay specialty wines. Sample Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) with optional wine pairings. After working up an appetite you'll be taken to one of the restaurants in Franschhoek to enjoy lunch at your own expense. Journey into Stellenbosch a charming historical town surrounded by beautiful landscape views. Finish the wine tour by clinking your glass and taste fine wines paired with biltong (dried meat-jerky) that offers a real South African experience. End off with a late afternoon drop-off.
