Itinerary

Your friendly personal tour guide will meet you at your hotel. 

This day is filled with extrodanary tastes and award winning wines. There is nothing more rewarding than when great wine and food work in harmony together. The first experience will be at one of the oldest estates for a master cheese and wine pairing experience. You will also get to taste locally made olive oil. The estate also has a wonderful deli with home made breads, a selection of cheeses, cured meats and codiments to compliment. We will then continue and drive through the Franschhoek valley surrounded by majestic mountains providing spectacular scenery. French Huguenots settled in this breathtaking valley in 1688 and brought with them their French flair for cooking and lifestyle. This delightful region emanates the same food and wine driven approach to life, but with a uniquely South African twist. Our next tasting experience is at an historic Cape Dutch manor house for a bubbly and nougat pairing (hand crafted nougat specifically made to compliment the flavours in each bubbly). Seating can be in the louge furnished with 17th century cape dutch furniture or on the patio with stunning views overlooking the beutiful lawns and mountains. Lunch can be enjoyed at a casual estate for a light cheese and charcuterie platter or if you feel like something special - treat yourself to a decadent lunch with spectacular views at one of the many gourmet resturaunts. After lunch we will introduce you to one of South Africa's much loved local snacks - Biltong. Enjoy a biltong tasting paired with local wines from the region at a small boutique estate. To end the day we will definitly need something sweet! chocolate! paired with some of South Africa's best Port and sweet wines. We will then make out way back to the city centre.
