STELLENBOSCH/FRANSCHOEK WINE TOURS
Stellenbosch, the second oldest wine producing region in South Africa, is a key player in the local and global wine markets and has been producing wines since 1679. Superb terroir and generations of finely honed winemaking skills are responsible for a huge range of well established, finely detailed wines from Stellenbosch. Explore older, traditional estates and see what Stellenbosch has to offer the lover of classics and consistently excellent wines of superior quality. Stellenbosch is arguably South Africa's viticulture capital, producing approximately 14% of South African wine. Stellenbosch and Franschhoek boast rich histories, established cultivars and diverse wine styles, true heavyweights in the industry with a range of world-class wines to experience first hand.
This private Stellenbosch Franschhoek wine tour concentrates on the top producers in these districts and offers you the best of both regions during a full day wine tour. We chose wine estates not on the quality of their wines alone but also on the wine tasting experience they offer.
FULL DAY HERMANUS TOUR
This picturesque tour takes you over the mountains to the seaside town of Hermanus. Set between mountains and the sea, Hermanus is not only very striking but offers some of the greatest land-based opportunities for whale watching in the world (August – November). Close sightings of the Southern Right whale are likely. On the drive back we follow the coastline, which gives the further possibility of whale (and even dolphin)sightings. A stop is made at Stony Point, near Betty’s Bay to see the penguin colony (optional, for own account & time permitting). In the afternoon, return to Cape Town via Sir Lowry’s Pass.
