  • About 40 km to the east of Cape Town and in the shadow of a continuous belt of cape fold mountains lies a series of generous valleys known as the Cape Winelands – a collection of historic towns, little hamlets and Cape Dutch farmsteads that provide well-regarded South African wines to the world. These mountains create an incredible scenic backdrop for myriad vines, but they are also the reason wines do well in the region.

  • Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Wellington, Paarl and Tulbagh form the backbone of the Cape Winelands; their wine route represents hundreds of wine and grape producers making them the largest wine producers in the country with grape cultivation that dates back to the 1600s.

  • The Cape Winelands district is a landlocked area in-between West Coast and the Overberg Coasts including Drakenstein, Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Witzenberg and Breede River Valley and Lengerberg Winelands. Collectively they are known as the 'Pearls' of South Africas rural and small towns.

  • This tour can be tailored according to your interests prior to departure.
