Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Suider Paarl, Suider Paarl, Paarl, Western Cape

On the start of this Cape Winelands tour we will depart from Cape Town after picking you up from your hotel and head towards the famous town of Stellenbosch.

Less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, the region north of Stellenbosch has earned international acclaim not only for its Paarl wines but also the breathtaking beauty of its natural surroundings.

The name Paarl means ‘pearl’ and reflects the way the ancient granite mountains, which early Dutch settlers called ‘den Diamont ende Peerlbergh’ (‘the diamond and pearl mountain’), glisten in the distance.

Duration: 45 minutes

After a splendors time at the first vineyard, we proceed with a 15 minute drive to the next vineyard for another amazing wine experience to explore some of the finest wines produced in the region.

Influenced by our French heritage and international savoir-faire, we strive to make French style wines with a touch of South African vibes. We believe in natural, minimal intervention winemaking, with the firm believe that the secret to a great wine lies in the vineyard and in the beautiful landscape that surrounds it.

You will be experiencing our biltong and wine pairing of five carefully selected wines, paired with premium cuts of biltong.

Biltong is a cured, dry meat often enjoyed as a snack by South Africans. Vegan friendly options available as well.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Stellenbosch, Stellenbosch, Western Cape

Your wine experience is not complete until we visit the town of Stellenbosch. . .

The beautiful little town of Stellenbosch, lies surrounded by the Stellenbosch Mountains in the Jonkershoek River Valley in one of the most picturesque settings in the Cape.

The second oldest town in South Africa has fondly been called ‘Eikestad’ or city of oaks and its streets are lined with some of the most beautiful surviving examples of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture in the Cape.

You will have time to walk along Dorp Street and De Braak Street in Stellenbosch, browsing through a variety of boutique stores and to witness the enticing Dutch buildings.
