Tour description provided by Viator

We offer private, bespoke, winemaker-led wine tasting tours of the Cape winelands. Whether you are a curious beginner or wine anorak looking for some cork dork combat we can visit the Grande Dames, the garagistes, the high-tech, the biodynamic, the ethical; the list goes on - or an informative walk through cellars and/or vineyards of breath-taking beauty. Or if you fancy exploring our world-class cuisine, we can go on picturesque picnics, visit county delis, chocolatiers, cheese and chacuterie makers, fine dining or leisurely lunches on dramatic mountain-top or winery settings. All Tripadvisor ratings are 'excellent' https://www.tripadvisor.co.za/Attraction_Review-g312673-d7333235-Reviews-Cape_Winelands_Winemaker_Led_Tours-Stellenbosch_Western_Cape.html
We`tailor the tour according to our client's interests in say grape varieties, styles and regions, for example, so there are no 'off the shelf' tours. Depending on where we collect you, the day starts between 9 - 10am at the client's discretion. A typical morning includes three winery visits including tastings and either a vineyard visit (summers only) and/or cellar tour (year round) at the client's request. Depending on how long guests prefer to lunch, a typical afternoon includes two more wineries and tastings. We offer half-day tours but not half-day rates. The fee includes tastings, soft drinks and transport and excludes lunch. Drop-off is around 530-600pm again depending on where the client's accommodation is relative to the region we visit. This, of course, can be shortened at the client's request.
