Cape Town Wine tours who wish to include a visit to the
cheetah facility will start the day with this stop. Guests
can have a quick lookaround at the facility at no charge,
or for those wishing to take part in encounters, time will
normally try to cover 3 of our wine regions that are in
close proximity and try to do a wine tasting in each town
or area. These are the wine regions of Paarl, Franschhoek
and the ever popular and historical Stellenbosch. We usually
start off our Cape Town wine tours in Stellenbosch with
a proper wine cellar tour. This wine cellar tour will last for about
an hour which will include the first wine tasting of the day
conducted by an experienced worker of this cellar.
the wine cellar tour and first wine tasting, our Cape Town wine tours take
us over the beautiful Helshoogte Mountain pass towards Franschhoek.
Free time will be available to explore the beautiful and
historical main road of Franschhoek where lunch stops and
shopping options are readily available. We will visit a
farm in this area for another tasting and give you some
insight on the historical background of the French Huguenots
that fled the religious and political issues in France and
came to Cape Town in 1688.
Route to Paarl we will drive past the prison where Nelson
Mandela was released in Cape Town after years of imprisonment
including 21 years on Robben Island. We cover a bit of this
history as well as stopping for a photo opportunity of the
statue of this big and very popular statesman. In Paarl
we will end our day with a final wine taste at one of its
farms. Here we try to mix it up and include possible cheese
tastings, beer and chocolate, depending on availability.
The above Cape Town wine tours itinerary should be used as a guideline only.
In extreme, busy periods some wine farms might be full or
overcrowded in which case we will make use of another option.
We have around 500 wine farms to choose from and we can
always customize our wine tours to accommodate some of your
personal requests during private Cape Town wine tours.
