Wine Escapes was born out of a love for South Africa, its great wine and a passion to share our wine culture and heritage. Our vision is thus to partner with various wine farms in building South Africa's reputation as a wine destination of choice. To do this we offer specialized, exclusive wine tours where guests are introduced to some of the best Estates and wines, whilst providing them with excellent service and hospitality.

John was amazing! He is incredibly knowledgable, welcoming, and fun! He catered the tour especially for the kind of wine and wineries we were interested in, and he took us to wineries that we would never have found otherwise. It was a pretty magical day.
