Description

Enjoy the finest vineyard experience available on two-wheels on this full-day winelands tour. Visit up to three of South Africa’s leading wineries, including a tasting of boutique wines, and even stop at an award-winning brandy distillery. Each tasting is accompanied by perfectly paired nibbles, ranging from olives to cheeses. Then, cycle to a five-star restaurant and hotel for a mouth-watering lunch overlooking the vineyards. This tour is perfectly suited for young-hearted and outdoor-loving people seeking a South African wine tour from a different point of view.

History

The Cape Winelands is a collection of historic towns and Dutch farmsteads that are known for producing top South African wines. Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl, Tulbagh, and Wellington form the backbone of the Cape Winelands, with grape cultivation that dates as far back as the 1600s. Interestingly, the wines do so well in this area as a result of the unique mountain soils. However, the influence of nearby oceans means offshore winds prevail in summer. As they say, “a vineyard that can see the sea, is a good vineyard.”

Advice for visitors

Choose from a 10 or 20km cycle tour. Includes all wine tastings.

Did you know

Those looking to experience a range of South African vintages have no shortage of options in this city!
