Full description
Discover well-known large estates such as Spier Wine Farm which has over 300 years of history dating back to 1692. Explore smaller, privately-owned Haskell Vineyards which is the residence of many of the most famous names in South African wines. For a change of pace, visit the Van Ryn’s Brandy Distillery. Housed in a preserved chateau-like complex on the banks of the Eerste River, it is the only local producer of brandy in the region. Learn about the origins of Van Ryn’s dating back to 1845. Situated high on the slopes of the Helderberg mountain, explore Alto Estate, world-renowned for its handcrafted red wines since 1922. Get a fantastic panoramic view of the region from Kleine Zalze Lodge, which is located alongside the first fairway of De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate. Along with the awe-inspiring manor house, Neethlingshof estate is steeped in history which dates back to 1705 and is distinguished by its beautiful avenue of stone pines.  With this pass, take your time at each location, and craft an itinerary suited to your interests and schedule.

Collection and transfer went smoothly. I would have liked some more information about the wineries (a little introduction). Even if it was a very nice day, we prefer wine tasting with our own vehicle!

Great tour but didn’t realise if you started midday there would only be time for 3 vineyards
