Winelands - Paarl, Franschoek & Stellenbosch
The Cape Winelands is known throughout the world. The Winelands Tour meanders through spectacular mountain ranges, vineyards and Cape Dutch homesteads, visiting the historic wine regions of Paarl, Franschoek and Stellenbosch.
Paarl is set at the foot of the cluster of remarkable granite domes from which it takes its name, Dutch for Pearl. Franschoek, dating back to the 17th century when the French Huguenots arrived, is billed as the Gourmet Capital of South Africa. This charming town, in a most picturesque valley, retains a French Huguenot style. Stellenbosch, the heart of the South African Wine Industry, boasts great beauty and culture that is steeped in South African history.
Our tours are specialised and tailored to meet your requirements with the Winelands Tour beginning with collection from your accommodation in a luxury air conditioned vehicle. An informative cellar tour and wine tasting in the Paarl region is enjoyed at a small privately owned estate, where often the actual wine maker will give visitors personalised insight into the finer points of wine-making.
Franschoek is the area of your second tasting which can be followed by lunch (for your own account) at a gourmet restaurant. Arrangements can also be made for an informal picnic at one of the many historic wine estate in incredible beautiful surroundings.
In the afternoon the tour ends with a visit to Stellenbosch with canal-lined avenues, in the shade of giant oak trees and beautifully preserved historic buildings. Coffee shops, galleries, antique shops and wine bars spill onto the sidewalks. An air of quiet intellectualism and wine-making history abounds in this university town. A further tasting can be enjoyed prior to departure back to Cape Town.
