Overview
Spend a day in the gorgeous wine country of Stellenbosch and Paarl Valley, enjoying some of the Cape Winelands’ famous wines along with historic towns and scenic drives. It’s an ideal day trip for wine lovers as well as anyone who can appreciate the area’s history and dramatic beauty.
What to Expect
Get picked up at your central Cape Town hotel and begin your day trip into Western Cape wine country.

The first stop is a visit to the town of Paarl in the Paarl Valley, where you’ll visit a wine estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting session. Next, stop in pretty Franschhoek before heading to Stellenbosch. It’s second only to Cape Town as the oldest European settlement in the province, and where the region’s winemaking got its start. The last wine tasting of the tour will be at one of the prominent wine estates in Stellenbosch.

The Pinotage grape is unique to South Africa, having been hybridized in the country, but it’s not the only wine you’ll taste. Other varietals are grown in South Africa, too, including Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay.

During your stops in Paarl and Stellenbosch, enjoy some free time to explore the towns on foot at your leisure.  After the last tasting of this relaxing day, head back to Cape Town aboard the vehicle. Please note that the order of stops may differ depending on the day.

Stellenbosch

Great day spent in Cape Town's wine region. The tour was fantastic, driver very friendly. Only complaint was not enough time was spent in Stellenbosch. Thirty minutes was not enough! Perfect day otherwise.

250 vineyards is hard to cover

Brian was our guide, very knowledgeable on the area and politics; he spent a lot of time talking about that and not about wine. He didn’t even join us during the tastings, which were all pretty acidic and full of tannin. We are not wine...More
