Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your day with pickup at your Cape Town hotel in a luxury minivan and head straight for the famous Stellenbosch wine region. The climate is akin to the Mediterranean, a longtime wine-growing region.

    Next, head for the nearby Paarl wine region to visit the Fairview Wine Estate for wine tasting session. Along with the winery’s well-known white wines, nibble on delicious cheeses.

    Stop for lunch in Franschhoek, internationally famous for its gourmet dining options. Get recommendations from your private guide for where to get something to eat (own expense) from the many restaurants and cafes in the pretty town.

    After your lunch break, visit the La Motte or Haute Cabriere wine estate outside Franschhoek in the Helderberg Mountains. Take in the splendid views from the winery while you taste their wines and learn how growing wine grapes in the mountains differs from growing them down in the valley.

    The final winery visit of the day is at Boschendal, one of the oldest wine estates in the country, dating back to the 1600s. From the outside, the winery may look traditional and old-fashioned, but when you see the cellars you’ll notice they are state-of-the-art. Enjoy your tour’s last wine tasting among the barrels in the tasting room or outside under the trees if the weather permits. Before getting back in the minivan for the relaxing drive back to Cape Town. Arrive in the early evening.

    The last stop on your tour is the Muratie wine estate, a local favorite with lots of rustic charm, where you’ll end with something sweet. At Muratie, sample dessert wine and locally-made chocolate.
