We explore one of the most scenically beautiful areas in SA, visiting fascinating towns and taking a look into off-the-beaten- track farms which revel in their old-world roots and influences.
Spend time in Stellenbosch, browsing through its wealth of appealing stores and museums and sip local coffee blends in tempting cafes. Your tasting experience will commence at one of the iconic wine estates, let the pairing of wine awaken your senses while enjoying breath-taking mountain ranges and lush gardens. Admire a collection of contemporary art, see the highest-growing vines and, from an elevated point, take in the stunning vistas over an old-world estate.
After lunch, we visit some of the smaller, boutique and family-owned wine estates for a more intimate wine tasting. Discover Franschhoek, established by the French Huguenots in 1688, this town retains its historic charm but has fused it with a contemporary vibe. It boasts gourmet restaurants, appealing boutiques and art galleries.
