Full Details

Start your day in the incredible Blaauwklippen Valley at one of Stellenbosch’s top wine estates, Waterford. With grand architecture, manicured gardens and cobbled pathways, the estate sets the tone for the amazing day ahead. Enjoy a superb wine tasting under the sunlit oak trees as you savour the beautiful setting.

Your next tasting in Stellenbosch is at a unique, boutique winery nestled in the dramatic Jonkershoek Valley. Taste beautiful hand-crafted wines from a small island overlooking a still pond that reflects the dramatic mountain range from above.

Next, enjoy award-winning estate wines from biologically grown grapes at the classically styled La Motte tasting room, while browsing an extensive selection of art, including famed SA artist, JH Pierneef’s heritage collection. Finish off with a stroll through the sculpture garden and admire the many works of art on display.

End the day with the local version of South African sparkling wine, Methode Cap Classique (MCC) perfectly paired with delicious canapes at a local producer within sight of the famous Huguenot Monument, a memorial to the French Huguenots that found their way to South Africa after fleeing persecution for their religious views in France.
