The Cape Winelands are some of the most beautiful in the world, with a heritage that lives on in beautifully preserved historic estates, boasting distinctive Cape Dutch-style architecture and a rich 400-year old winemaking tradition that has produced some of the world’s most classic and celebrated wines and some of the newest and most exciting.
Join connoisseur and world wine traveller, Trevor Earl for a highly informed voyage of discovery into the wonders of this unique wine area, with tours personalised for specific tastes and preferences.
