Tastes of the Stellenbosch Winelands Region
Get ready for a local wine tasting overload. Our wine experts have custom-designed this tour to give you a real taste of the winelands region – both visually and with your taste buds. You’ll visit Stellenbosch region, sample local produce, learn about flavour profiles and vintages from the experts and savour time sitting back and sampling some of South Africa’s finest in lush, lovely countryside.
Fruit of the vine: There’s something inherently romantic about quaffing a glass just metres from where the farmers produce their crops, press their grapes and cellar their wine… so we’ve bottled it up and are serving the ultimate winelands day tour on a platter.
South Africa’s wine industry is like a well-cellared red. It is robust; its flavour profiles have harmonised and, with the passing of time, the product improves with age. Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just a lover of natural beauty, you’ll be swept up in the splendour of the Stellenbosch countryside with its tell-tale Cape Dutch architecture and rolling vineyards as we showcase four very different wining and dining experiences.
Set a leisurely pace as you leave the coast behind and head north towards wine country and the first of the handpicked wineries on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. Today’s journey is undoubtedly a visual feast, but your taste buds are the real hero. After all, not all wines are created equal and Pinotage stands head and shoulders above the rest.
The paddock-to-plate partnership between winemakers, chefs, artisans and local producers rounds out today’s sensory journey. Here, in arguably South Africa’s most picturesque wine growing area, vintners pair their smooth reds and crisp whites with local produce – biltong (cured meat) and artisan ice-cream– in a delicate-yet-innovative partnership that enhances the wine’s flavours.
Your guide will uncover the mysteries, separate your Cabernets from your Cape Ruby and help you navigate the flavour profiles with ease. Wander your way past grapes on the vine and green valleys, to four top-tier wine farms – Babylonstoren, Marianne Estate, Clos Malvern and DeMorgenzon.
And for the true connoisseurs, no trip to wine country would be complete without a quick jaunt around the oak-lined streets of Stellenbosch’s historic old town, so that’s on the agenda too. And when the sampling is done, you can settle down for a snooze as you follow the setting sun back to Cape Town.
