My wife and I will be in Stellenbosch for a couple of days and wish to visit some wineries. The tours are highly recommended but before I commit to the R1000-R1200 quoted for the two of us can I ask whether people have had equally good winery experience by driving themselves?
I can see that there is a draw back that I as a driver will have to taste and not swallow and I that I will end the day with an intoxicated wife when I will be sober, but are there any other drawbacks? Are the wineries as accommodating to the independent traveller as to the tour guides?
I guess the other drawback I would have is knowing which winery to select, Does anyone have a suggestion of a winery that they thought stood out above the rest. I would like to visit t least one in each of Stellenbosch and Franzhoek areas.
