Wine is more than just a drink, it’s a passion and for those who want to explore it, there’s nothing better than an amazing vineyard tour.

Just an hour away from Cape Town, the Stellenbosch wine route is the oldest in the country and showcases over 300 wineries. With a wine route so vast it’s been divided into several sub-routes including, Bottelary Hills, Devon Valley Vintners, Helderberg and Simonsberg-Stellenbosch.
Known for its warm hospitality and breathtaking scenery, Franschhoek Wine route is something worth seeing. Built around a small town this route boasts distinctive artistry and is the gourmet capital of South Africa. So expect to experience some of South Africa’s greatest wines and enjoy delicious food on this route.
This spectacular wine route started as an outpost for trade between Dutch settlers and the local Khoi, giving it an air of local culture and making it unique. The name derives from the appearance of the Paarl rock, which resembles a pearl after the rain. Just 45 min away from Cape Town this wine route is part of the experience of the Cape.
