Taste the wines of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and or Paarl with a Private Guide
We go outside of Cape Town to explore the beautiful towns of Stellenbosch and Franschoek, and drive through the most fantastic mountains and vineyards of the Boland. This tour includes a wine cellar tour and wine tasting at three wine estates. Guests can purchase wines directly from the wine farms at estate prices.
On this popular tour I will take you to a wine cellar and bottling plant where you will be taken on a cellar tour and also taste 5 of their award winning wines. We will drive through Stellenbosch and I will show you the university and you will feel the special atmosphere that South Africa's second oldest town is famous for. We will visit "Oom Samie se Winkel", an old General Store that is kept just like it used to be 100 years ago.
We then drive over Helshoogte pass towards Franschoek where we can stop at Hillcrest Berry Orchards for lunch. In Franschoek we will visit the Huguenot Memomorial and just experience the special little town that is really trying to maintain their French traditions. Here we will enjoy a pairing with 6 of Franschoek's famous wines with 6 locally made cheeses.
We visit another wine estate for a wine tasting and then return to cape Town.
