What You Can Expect

Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl Valley Wine Day Trip

The famous Stellenbosch wine region of South Africa

Get picked up at your central Cape Town hotel and begin your day trip into Western Cape wine country.

The first stop is a visit to the town of Paarl in the Paarl Valley, where you’ll visit a wine estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting session. Next, stop in pretty Franschhoek before heading to Stellenbosch. It’s second only to Cape Town as the oldest European settlement in the province, and where the region’s winemaking got its start. The last wine tasting of the tour will be at one of the prominent wine estates in Stellenbosch.

The Pinotage grape is unique to South Africa, having been hybridized in the country, but it’s not the only wine you’ll taste. Other varietals are grown in South Africa, too, including Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay.

During your stops in Paarl and Stellenbosch, enjoy some free time to explore the towns on foot at your leisure.  After the last tasting of this relaxing day, head back to Cape Town aboard the vehicle. Please note that the order of stops may differ depending on the day.

This was a great time. We went to three 3 different wineries and all of them were wonderful. If you're pressed for time this is a great introduction into what South Africa has to offer in terms of wine. The tour guide was lovely and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend it.

This tour was absolutely outstanding because although we didn't taste any wines, we were made so welcome and part of the experience as those who did by the wineries and Darrol our guide who was so enthusiastic and passionate about sharing his wealth of knowledge with us that when we met on later tours where he wasn't our guide, he remembered us and asked how our current tour was going! Thank you Darrol!
