On the wine tour to South Africa the wine is only one part of the experience (but an important one). The food, nature and just being there is also a big part of the experience. South Africa is a country with a long wine history (longer than Medoc in Bordeaux!), although it is considered a New World country.

Here you will find old vines of grapes like cinsault and chenin blanc, and from these vines they make some amazing wines, far away from the mainstream and streamlined wines that you often see on the export market. South African wine is entering a new phase. Today they make world-class wines here! Just waiting to be discovered.

Stellenbosch is still the centre of the wine industry. However, for some grape varieties, such as sauvignon blanc and pinot noir, the producers are now searching for cooler climates. We will visit Walker Bay (also known for its whales) on the cost where we will stay in Hermanus, a beautiful little town.

From there we will have an extraordinary trip across the mountains to Franschhoek, one of the oldest wine regions of South Africa, beautifully located surrounded by mountains. We will, of course, visit Stellenbosch and Cape Town, and we tour the Cape Peninsula and visit the Cape of Good Hope.

This is a wine country that will give you memories for life.

Read more on this wine tour to the South Africa wine lands that will take place in November 2018. And if you have time, extend your trip with our amazing Eastern Cape safari.

We’d love to have you on the trip!
