Enjoy some of South Africa’s finest wines on a Winelands holiday
A holiday in the South African Winelands will see you sampling some great-tasting vintages. The luscious vineyards will be your dominant note but subtle flavours will be added by the impressive mountainous backdrops to your tour.
Constantia, one of the oldest suburbs of Cape Town, is the ideal place to uncork your Winelands holiday’s first bottle. Here you can enjoy boutique hotels and wine farms offering up a friendly glass or two.
A short drive from Cape Town will take you into the Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch valleys. This is the heart of South Africa’s Winelands and produces many of South Africa’s finest wines. What's more, many of the estates offer the chance to taste their produce. Even the smallest producers have well-appointed wine-tasting rooms and experts happy to offer you their advice. Don't miss out on the wine and chocolate experience at the Waterford Wine Estate, followed by lunch at the excellent Terroir Restaurant on the Kleine Zalze Wine Estate.
Your Winelands holiday is also the perfect opportunity to enjoy the cuisine at Franschhoek, the gastronomic capital of the region. Here you can sample some superb restaurants with your quality reds or whites.
