Cape Winelands Tour
What to expect
We depart from Stellenbosch over the Helshoogte Pass, one of the most loved and travelled roads in the Western Cape, linking Stellenbosch with the Drakenstein Valley, a scenic pass that transports our guests over the saddle that separates Simonsberg from the Jonkershoekberge and winds its way past fruit farms and vineyards en route.
Our next stop is the Franschhoek Motor Museum, offering our guests a special opportunity to look back at more than 100 years of motoring history with its unique and exciting collection of vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles and memorabilia in the magnificent setting of L’Ormarins.
We make our way to the final stop of the tour, Paarl. In 1657, Abraham Gabemma set out from the Cape in search of resources. On his journey he came across a giant granite rock gleaming in the distance. He called this Pearl Mountain, and the town that grew at its base eventually became known as Paarl. Discovering the Paarl wine region is what most visitors do here, and for good reason. The Paarl Wine Route, is known for its full-bodied spicy reds and crisp whites.
With wine tastings at 3 renowned estates in between all our other activities, guests are able to gain a firm and fond sense of what the Cape Winelands is all about. Where appreciation of our fine wines is paired with nature, history and food. Each tour and wine estate are handpicked, based on guest’s wine preferences and interests.
