What You Can Expect

Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl Wine Tasting Private Tour from Cape Town

Fairview wine and cheese pairing

Begin your day with pickup at your Cape Town hotel in a luxury minivan and head straight for the famous Stellenbosch wine region. The climate is akin to the Mediterranean, a longtime wine-growing region.
The first stop on your tour is the Muratie wine estate, a local favorite with lots of rustic charm, where you’ll start with something sweet. At Muratie, sample dessert wine and locally-made chocolate.
Next, head for the nearby Paarl wine region to visit the Fairview Wine Estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting session. Along with the winery’s well-known white wines, nibble on delicious cheeses.
Stop for lunch in Franschhoek, a short five miles (eight kilometers) away, internationally famous for its gourmet dining options. Get recommendations from your private guide for where to get something to eat (own expense) from the many restaurants and cafes in the pretty town.
After your lunch break, visit the La Motte or Haute Cabriere wine estate outside Franschhoek in the Helderberg Mountains. Take in the splendid views from the winery while you taste their wines and learn how growing wine grapes in the mountains differs from growing them down in the valley.
The final winery visit of the day is at Boschendal, one of the oldest wine estates in the country, dating back to the 1600s. From the outside, the winery may look traditional and old-fashioned, but when you see the cellars you’ll notice they are state-of-the-art. Enjoy your tour’s last wine tasting among the barrels in the cellar before getting back in the minivan for the relaxing drive back to Cape Town. Arrive in the early evening.

Leizel made our experience one to remember. She was more than accommodating to us and our kids on the tour and her knowledge of the area made for a relaxing, but once-in-a-lifetime memory for our entire family. Thank you!

We had an excellent guide who was able to let us personalize out trip and spend the time doing what we enjoyed rather than rushing from place to place just to check them off. Consequently we awere able to tour the Stellenbosch Museum and really spend some quality time there - it is fascinating. We also enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Coopmanhuijs Hotel which has excellent food and service.

We were met by Andrew at the cruise terminal in Cape Town in a new people carrier. Andrew was very knowledgable and tailored the trip to meet our needs. He gave us time for lunch at a restaurant, which he booked, then with time for shopping. His knowledge on wines, vines and production was superb. We spent a full day in his company, no rush to get us back.
Would highly recommend this trip and Andrew. A memorable day in a beautiful part of South Africa.

Wonderful time we had!!! Our tour driver was very nice and attentive and did everything he could to help us, because we did the tour on Dec 24th and not all wineries were opened. But we could go to wonderful wineries and taste wonderful wines. Don't miss it!!!
