Your fascinating Half-Day Cape Winelands Tour experience begins when you are picked up at your hotel (City Center, Green Point and Sea Point Hotels). You’ll be driven to Stellenbosch where you’ll have 3 hours to explore this charming town and indulge in a wine tasting. If time permits, there will be a second wine tasting!
Stellenbosch dates back to 1679 and is the second-oldest wine producing region in South Africa.Thanks to the mild weather and the unique ‘terroir’, Stellenbosch wines have earned numerous international awards over the years.
The region is famous for its high-quality reds. Cabernet Sauvignon performs exceptionally well here and Stellenbosch produces some of the best examples in South Africa. Merlot, Pinotage and Shiraz are other notable reds. Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are the prominent whites. Excellent brandies are also distilled in the Stellenbosch area.
The town of Stellenbosch was founded in 1679 by the Governor of the Cape Colony, Simon van der Stel, who named it after himself. He planted many oak trees to grace the streets and homesteads, thus leading to the town being called the ‘City of Oaks’ (Eikestad in Afrikaans).
You’ll enjoy strolling along the streets and secluded lanes, enjoying the atmosphere. You’re free to mingle with the locals at an open-air bistro or delight in the international cuisine at one of the many restaurants and eateries (meals payable direct).
You will be able to take part in one or two wine-tasting sessions depending on time available.
After enjoying the many charms of Stellenbosch, you’ll be driven back to Cape Town and dropped at the point where you were picked up. Alternative drop-off points can be arranged but extra charges might apply.
Please call the activity operator at least 48 hours prior to start of the tour for reconfirming the tour and departure details.
Very nice half-day tour, ideal when you come off a long-haul flight as it enables stretching of the legs and some gentle exercise. Great tour guide...Ms Paula Emmenegger, United Kingdom
