African Story Wine Tours
Daytrips to the Winelands
A perfect way to discover the Winelands
Uncork the Cape winelands and get drunk on its rich history, culture and great views with a guide who takes the terror out of terroir.
From full-bodied tales with complex twists - like a 1688 French-run slave farm turned 21st century community driven wine project - to light and fruity fables, Bruce and his awesome guides will keep you entertained. Be led by the nose on high roads and back roads tasting and learning about S.A’s bubbly Cap Classique, heady ports, sweet dessert wines and plenty of red and white wines.
The full day tipple begins in the Paarl wine region, famous for its cheese and wine tastings and great views. You’ll then meander to the Franschhoek wine region - a historic French enclave and grand-daddy of South African viticulture with stunning mountain views. Then on to student-settled Stellenbosch for home-cloned Pinotage and award-winning farms. Also included is ridiculously luscious a la carte lunch that it’s hard to talk about without drooling: 200g beef burger, grandma’s bobotie, warm chicken salad and great vegetarian meals...
Tours are chilled out with plenty of time for fun, laughter and glass clinking with fellow winos - not to mention time to learn to tell the tannins from the trees and the odd surprise of olives, chocolates and it’s a surprise...
