Capetown Wineland


I am traveling to Capetown for two weeks in August/September. We wanted to stop in at a vineyard between capetown and Oudtshoorn ( big distance i know) but i heard the best are around Stellenbosh and franschhoek. I was recommended to do the wine tram in Franschhoek . . .We would basically like to stop at a large vineyard just to experience walking through the vines maybe a litte tasting etc a few hours would be ample for us.

Any recommendations would be great!!

Then Boschendal in Franschhoek may be your best bet. It's a beautiful large estate with wine tasting, picnic possibilities, they have a small museum.

I would not recommending to do that on the day that you will driving from Cape Town to Oudtshoorn. Rather do that on a day that you have free and spend at least a full day in the Wine Lands visiting Stellenbosch and Franschoek. If you have to stop at a winery on route on the day that you will be driving, rather stop maybe in Paarl, Montagu or even Robertson. All of these towns are on your way and you do not even have to drive very far off your route to get to them.

I would recommend Vergelegen and Lourensford. Both in Somerset West. They would give you a good few hours.the house and grounds at Vergelegen are beautiful

However, I agree with Hank. It would be better to spend a whole day in the winelands
