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.

The sun shone for our lovely wine tour! John was so knowledgeable about the wineries in the area, and much more, which made our day so entertaining. We visited some great places which specialised in red wine which is what we had requested. All topped off with a delicious lunch with glorious views on the terrace at Jordan's. A day... More

John collected us from our residence and safely toured four of us around the Wineries which we all enjoyed no end. He is extremely efficient and knowledgeable, not only on the wine region but also about the whole of South Africa and was able to answer any questions that we threw at him. He is very social, kind and fun... More

He tailor made our trip, ensuring he picked wineries that suited the wines we liked and his recommendations were spot on. His relationships with the wineries ensured that we were able to enjoy the best... More

We had an amazing day experiencing what delicious wine the Stellenbosch area has to offer! John was incredibly knowledgeable and we learnt so many interesting little facts on the drive. It was great to be able to sit back and relax knowing the whole day was organised for us. I couldn't recommend this company enough, thanks for such a great... More

What a terrific way to spend a day outside of Cape Town. John was super knowledgeable about the area (flora/fauna, history, etc.) not just the wines and vineyards we visited. He was super flexible, picking us up directly at our AirBnb and leaving us at a farm that evening where we had dinner. He left plenty of time for tastings... More

John was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed! John created an amazing itinerary for us based on wines we enjoyed and was incredibly knowledgeable throughout our visit. We especially loved the wine and biltong pairing! This was definitely the highlight of our visit to the wine region. We will definitely be recommending John to our friends!

John picked us up from our residence in Cape Town in the morning to enjoy a full day of wine tastings / cellar tours and lunch. John was extremely knowledgeable about South African wine (and wine in general), picking some excellent vineyards to visit throughout the day from previous correspondence about what we wanted from our tour. Would highly recommend... More

John arrived at our hotel and drove us within 4 1/2 hours to 3 different wineries. They were excellently chosen, according to our needs and expectations. John is very friendly and knowledgable and we could not imagine to have this morning in a better way. All questions were answered, everything worked out. To be recommended!

My wife and I did a private tour with John whilst on Honeymoon. As novices in the wine world, John had put together a specific itinerary to let us see everything from the small, family run organic vineyard; then on to an upmarket and beautiful place where you could pitch on the lawn for a picnic; finishing at a larger,...
