Stellenbosch Tour: a Capetonian cuisine extravaganza!
Pick up: 10am Saturdays & Sundays
Large Groups: Available any day
South Africa is renowned for both her beer and her wine, and we have some of the best wine farms and craft breweries right here in the Cape. So we’ve created our very own Stellenbosch tour, perfect for both guys and gals, with some biltong and an afternoon braai thrown in for good measure for a very South African cuisine experience. This uniquely Capetonian tour takes you to the best spots along the famous Stellenbosch wine route.
The Stellenbosch tour requires a bit of a drive from Cape Town city centre, but you don’t need to worry about that. We’ll fetch you at 10am at your location within the city bowl, and drop you off after the tour finishes – so you can have as much wine and beer as you like!
Biltong & Wine Pairing
Our first stop is something you will literally only find in South Africa: a wine and biltong pairing. Yep, you read right, that’s wine and biltong – paired for your enjoyment while you drink in the spectacular views on show at this location. This is an experience you aren’t likely to ever forget, including panoramic views, carefully chosen local biltong and remarkable wines. This wine farm is also famous for serving wine at Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday celebration – some of which you can sample!
Authentic South African Braai
Our next stop could not get any more authentically South African. We quite literally pull off the road into a dirt carpark to find a microbrewery in a shed. The beers on offer here are brewed in accordance with the strict old German Reinheitsgebot brewing law, presented in classic swing-top bottles. Here we’ll have an awesome chilled out braai (coal barbeque) for lunch, where you can enjoy some of the drinks you’ve purchased at the first stop. The owners let you bring in your own wine if you’re not in the mood for their beer.
Zebra & Springbok Viewing while Wine Tasting
Our next stop boasts Zebra and Springbok wildlife, while you get to taste amazing Cape wine! We’ll get to taste some top drawer wines here, and you’ll definitely want to pick a few bottles up when you see the affordable price tags. Some of the most unique farms in the winelands, where you get a taste of wildlife and beautiful wines.
Craft Microbrewery Tour & Tasting
Our last stop takes us to the home of the World’s Best Craft Lager of 2014. At this microbrewery we’ll be treated to an in-depth tour of the facilities, taste four beers (including a uniquely local Rooibos infused lager), and indulge in a morning draught beer of your choice. Worried about your waistline? Don’t be! These beers are naturally low in carbs, with two being completely sugar free, ensuring that these moments on the lips will never reach the hips.
