Spend a day in the Cape Winelands and learn how this region propelled South African wines onto the world stage.|
Begin at the Taal Monument in Paarl which offers a fantastic view of the surrounding area. The morning wine tasting takes place at Nelsons Creek Estate after a tour through their cellars. A brief city tour of Paarl follows, before you head to Franschhoek. This little village nestled in the mountains could easily be mistaken for Switzerland. You'll tour the town and then have the chance to sample cheese and wine at La Courrin Estate.
After an optional lunch (surcharge) the tour continues to the famous Spier Estate for an afternoon tasting their wines before heading to Stellenbosch. With a backdrop of the Hottentots Holland mountains, the white gabled Cape Dutch homesteads, and the oak lined streets this area has a memorable charm.
