Depart the city to the Winelands region in the nearby Boland Mountains, for a leisurely exploration of historic Wine Route towns, their liquid delights and famed hospitality.
Estates visited will vary according to client preferences, but the tour generally includes the region’s major wine producing areas, and there are chances aplenty en route for tastings of high quality reds and whites as well as Cap Classiques (South African “Champagnes”) in areas including Stellenbosch, Simonsberg, Paarl and Franschhoek.
