“Stellenbosch winery tour”
Reviewed 17 November 2016 via mobile

WOW! We had an amazing day with our guide Jonathon. We come from a wine region in Australia, so we were really looking forward to this tour and Jonathon did not let us down. His incredible knowledge of wine is amazing and he really knows the local area well. The wineries we went to was entirely up to us, however we insisted he choose which wineries he thought would be most suitable for us - which he bases on which varieties and styles of wine you like. Amazing wine tour, capped off by a very friendly, fun, laid back driver! Thanks Jonathon - 10/10!!!

“Two fantastic days!”
Reviewed 11 January 2016

Had a fantastic couple of days with Jonathan around Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. As a winemaker / critic his depth of knowledge is way above that of your typical wine guide but he is also great company and I would recommend him to anyone from wine novice to wine buff. His contacts certainly made a few of our winery visits even more memorable!
Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Knowledgeable Stellenbosch Guide”
Reviewed 8 September 2015

Jonathan demonstrated exceptional local knowledge as to the Stellenbosch/Franschoek wine scene, and as an experienced winemaker and critic, his expertise added an altogether different dimension to our tasting experience. He's also a good guy. Highly recommended.

“Wine Tour”
Reviewed 28 January 2015

If you are looking for someone who is an expert in his field and provides excellent advice and takes you to the right wineries followed by a great lunch you can’t go past Jonathan Snashall. Our family recently had the pleasure of Jonathan’s expert advice in the Stellenbosch area.

“Great day tour of Stellenbosch”
Reviewed 21 January 2015

My friend and I had a great day touring Stellenbosch, and a bit of Constantia, with Jonathan. He's obviously very passionate about the craft of winemaking, and it's amazing to be led around by somebody so knowledgeable. We especially appreciated how patient he was answering our questions (some very rudimentary) about wine! He planned out all the stops we made during the tour and helped us sample the wide diversity of South African wines; we couldn't have asked for more.
