    The climate of the Western cape is a Mediterranean one, which makes the conditions perfect for grape farming. The beautiful, clean towns of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are brimming with lively coffee shops and restaurants, as well as a good helping of farmers markets. Couple this with numerous award winning wine estates, impeccable service and stunning mountainous views and valleys and you have our favourite day trip to explore.

    Aside from the excellent wines, the area is renowned for its food and is steeped in history such as the Taal monument, various museums and the contribution of the French Huguenots. There are also many attractions you wouldn’t expect to find on a wine route, from butterflies to cheetahs and pretty much everything in between.

    Our tours are private, which means the day is yours. The beauty of a private tour, unlike scheduled tours, is that we don’t clock watch and hold you to strict times. This allows us to adjust the route according to how the day is moving along, so relax and enjoy the day!

    Departs: ± 09h00
    Returns: ± 16h30

    Our day will begin heading out of Cape Town towards Franschhoek, first stopping at Babylonstoren where we will explore the expansive gardens before enjoying our first wine tasting. We will continue into the heart of Franschhoek, first visiting one of the many premium estates that it has to offer. A short amble around the town, exploring the boutique shops, art galleries and cafes that line the Franschhoek is a must.

    Lunch can be enjoyed at any of the wine estate that we visit, however, advanced booking is essential. Should we be unsuccessful in a reservation, there are plenty of sidewalk restaurants in Franschhoek or Stellenbosch where one can enjoy honest food.

    After lunch we will head to Stellenbosch via the Helshoogte Pass and enjoy further tasting of fine wines in this region before returning back.

    As this is a private tour, the advantage is that we never have a predictable day. While the towns are always on our agenda, we don’t always visit the same estates as there are so many great ones to choose from. So if you have any wine estates that you have researched and would be interested in visiting, please pop us a note in your enquiry and we will try our best to tailor it into our itinerary.

    Most of the French Huguenots who settled in the area were given land by the Dutch government in a valley called Olifantshoek (‘Elephant’s Corner’), so named due to the vast herds of elephants that roamed the area.

    Did you know that Stellenbosch, known as the City of Oaks, is the oldest town in South Africa? It forms part of the Cape Winelands and contributes towards the 450 million litres of wine exported annually. South Africa is committed to sustainable wine farming and is the 9th largest producer of wine in the world.
