Your winelands experience combines the best of the Cape’s three major wine regions – Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
Your guide will enquire regarding your wine preferences and take you to the estates that best compliment your tastes, for an enjoyable and scenic day out in Cape wine country.
Paarl - Only 22 miles from Cape Town, the "Pearl of the Cape" lies nestled in the Berg River Valley, guarded by the huge granite rocks from which it gets its name. It is well known for it’s Wine, cuisine, culture and is home of the Afrikaans language.
Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, has a significant historical place in the regions past. The well-known university here is held in the highest regard. The narrow streets lined with old beech and oak trees create a typical European feeling, of the better-known university towns, which the students on their bicycles and in dark coats further engender. Some wonderful examples of Cape Dutch architecture can be found here. Guests can explore the popular Dorp Street and Oom Samie se Winkel.
Franschhoek - The Gourmet Capital. The ragged peaks of Franschhoek shelter exquisite valleys and chocolate-box houses with neat rows of well-tended vines. Franschhoek, as the name suggests, is the area where many French folk settled. The estates here will enchant you, and the villages have a strong bent towards classic art and handcrafts. The focus here will be on scenery, good food, wine and shopping.
