Get picked up at your central Cape Town hotel and begin your day trip into Western Cape wine country.
Visit the town of Paarl in the Paarl Valley, where you’ll visit a wine estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting session, along with winery stops in pretty Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. It’s second only to Cape Town as the oldest European settlement in the province, and where the region’s winemaking got its start.
The Pinotage grape is unique to South Africa, having been hybridized in the country, but it’s not the only wine you’ll taste. Other varietals are grown in South Africa, too, including Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay.
During your stops in Paarl and Stellenbosch, enjoy some free time to explore the towns on foot at your leisure. After the last tasting of this relaxing day, head back to Cape Town aboard the vehicle. Please note that the order of stops may differ depending on the day.
