Wine estate recommendations – Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Somerset West regions.
There are almost 200 wineries and estates to choose from when doing a day tour from Cape Town. Somerset West and Franschhoek are both approximately one hour from the city and Stellenbosch forty five minutes.
The region is probably best known for quality red wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux style blends and the uniquely local, Pinotage) however most estates produce a range of wines, with many excellent examples of Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and many more, to be found.
All our tours are conducted on a private basis and our expert tour guides will plan the day according to guests’ preferences and pace. Here are just a few great options:
Rust en Vrede
Spier – ideal for families
Villiera – sparkling wines as well
Rupert & Rothschild
Vrede en Lust
Le Lude – sparkling wine only
Boekenhoutskloof – by appointment only
