We have one night (in between 2 flights) to see the Wine Region and would like some thoughts on the plan that I have come up with. Our time is limited and we only really want to visit one vineyard to get a feel for it (as we aren't huge drinkers). A lot of the vineyard restaurants seem to be shut on a Sunday night which is when we would be there.
Also, so that we can both drink I was wondering whether it would be possible to do it without a car (by getting a transfer from the airport on the first day) and then hiring a driver / tour the following day. If people think this is possible then does anyone have any recommendations of companies that do this?
Our flight lands at 3.45pm and then we would go to Franschoek where we were thinking of staying at the Plumwood Inn. Then we could have a look around the centre of Franschoek and hopefully go for dinner at La Bon Vivant.
Then the next morning I was thinking of going to the Waterford Estate to do their Wine Drive and Wine Tasting, and then on to Jordan Retaurant for lunch before driving through Stellenbosch (not sure if we need to stop to walk around here?) on the way back to the airport to catch a flight at 6.45pm.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
