Wine Tasting with a Stellenbosch wine maker
From US$104.58
Overview
Our most popular wine tasting tour. We visit some of the youngest and oldest wine estates in the area as well as those in-between. You will taste a representative cross section of regional wines and visit vines and cellars where possible as well.  
Your guide, Jim is South African and certified to guide in all 9 provinces for Culture and Nature. He speaks English and Swedish, is a Cape Wine Academy graduate, garagiste winemaker (Hunneyball Wines in Platters) and member of the South African Sommeliers Association with great interest in sharing his knowledge of all aspects of wine enjoyment and production.  He has the required Professional Driver’s License, Public Transport Permits and insurances to carry tourists. He is also a Western Cape bird enthusiast and keen photographer. You can ask him what you like. :-)    
What to Expect
This full day tour introduces young and old wine making styles across the spectrum from light crisp flavours to complex robust red blends.
Varieties to taste: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin, Rousanne, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and French-style and Cape blends.
Our wine tours showcase some of South Africa’s best vineyards with a strong emphasis on heritage and includes a mix of the best of what the Cape wine route offers with respect to culture, nature, wines and cuisine. Being in the historic heart of the country’s wine region with an elegant mix of 18th century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian culture, this is a marvelous way to explore the Cape Winelands.
The Cape Winelands are in what is probably the world's most beautiful countryside with dramatic, expansive vistas of mountains, vineyards and ocean. There are over 400 wineries in the Cape and our winelands tours concentrate on the wine growing areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek.
Our tours are unpretentious and done at a leisurely pace with a focus on your enjoyment, learning and relaxation. In the middle of the day, we stop for a relaxed a-la-carte lunch.

Personalized and Informative Wine Tour

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed our "Bubbles and Reds" wine tasting tour. By the second tasting, you REALLY start to have fun with the alcohol kicking in 😉Jim keeps the groups small and intimate to allow for a less commercial experience...More

Amazing Wine Tour

We did the potpourri tasting tour. It was great, we tasted 23 wines at 5 estates and each with its own particular wine making style. Jim explained really well about the wine making processes and had lots of stories about the various places we visited....More
