You will be collected at your Cape Town, Waterfront or Sea Point hotel. Departing from Cape Town you head north to Stellenbosch in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Stellenbosch, a picturesque town featuring old Cape-Dutch architecture and oak lined streets, is the second oldest town in modern South Africa after Cape Town.
Your itinerary includes a tour of the town, which is also home to Stellenbosch University and is very much a student town. At a Stellenbosch region wine estate you’ll be taken on a cellar tour, during which the winemaking process - harvesting of the grapes, fermentation, etc. - will be explained to you. Afterwards a guided wine tasting, of a couple of the particular estate’s different cultivars, awaits. You’ll have the option to buy a bottle or two or have a crate of wine shipped home.
