What to expect
  • Your group will be picked up aboard an air-conditioned minivan from your Cape Town hotel in the morning and transfer to the town of Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands region. Start the day with a visit at Kanonkop Wine Estate, located in the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains. Sample the winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon and award-winning Pinotage vintages in their Oak maturation cellars. Then continue to your next winery, Eikehof. Dating to 1903, this picturesque wine estate is steeped in four generations of family history. You’ll sample five different Eikehof varietals such as their Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, or Sauvignon Blanc. Your next stop is Haute Cabriere, where you’ll have the chance to tour their unique underground auditorium, tasting room, and Pinot Noir barrel maturation area. While visiting Haute Cabriere, guests will also get to explore the vineyard’s history and winemaking philosophy, including the chance to sample five of their top wines. Following the Haute Cabriere visit, have time to stop for lunch (own expense) choosing between delicious gourmet options like the estate’s cellar restaurant or the various award-winning eateries located in Franschhoek. Leaving the Franschhoek area, continue to Continue to Rust en Vrede, a winemaker whose tradition of making bold red wines date back more than 320 years. Admire the estate’s Cape Dutch architecture while sampling seven different wines. You’ll be in good company by visiting this esteemed winemaking property: former president Nelson Mandela once served Rust en Vrede wines for his Nobel Peace Prize Dinner. Following your fourth winery visit, return to Cape Town aboard your private minivan, watching as the silhouette of Table Mountain grows on the horizon. Please note: the chosen wineries on the trip are subject to change, and the itinerary is flexible to suit the schedule and interests of the participants.

Simply the most perfect day
Jan 2019 • Friends
I simply cannot rate Hotspots2C highly enough. I surprised my friend for her 50th birthday by turning up on her pre-booked wine tour. The office went out of their way to accommodate the surprise and our tour guide Gerhard was exceptional. I could not have scripted the day better if I tried. Gerhard played along beautifully, booked lunch for us at La Petit Ferme, arranged a birthday cake and even went as far as buying a bottle of Boschendal wine as a birthday gift for my friend. Everything was perfect. Thank you Hotspots2C for outstanding service and a wonderful day out.

Awesome Experience
Jan 2019 • Couples
We had an incredible time on our full day tour. Ulrich (GG) was an incredible tour guide taking us to vineyards based on our specific wine preferences. He was very knowledgeable about the vineyards and the history of South Africa, which made our honeymoon experience extra special.
