Wine Tasting Tour (Stellenbosch)

The Western Cape is a world renowned wine region, recognised internationally for its fine wines and it is a popular destination for wine connoisseurs from around the world.

While the Cape’s famed winelands have spread to Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek and beyond, it all began in Constantia valleys with a wine-making tradition which spans over more than 300 years, the Constantia Valley and its surrounds is the oldest wine-producing region in the Southern Hemisphere, its picturesque farms still producing world class, award-winning wines. Our wine tour emphasises the culture of this tradition and takes you through the history and traditions of wine making.

This Wine Tour is different, something memorable, immensely fun, but mostly a real South African experience in the heart of the wine lands. A must if you want to experience the best of everything the winelands has to offer, learn about winemaking history, indulge in local treats and share stories with our people.

You will get to visit iconic estates. BUT even better... as you will also get to taste the wine lands in a more real way. A diversity of different farms in different regions like Stellenbosch etc, share stories with the locals, endless cheese tastings, local treats, chocolate and wine pairings, cellar tour, vineyard walk and of course numerous wines. This is what we pride ourselves in.
