Private Classic Full Day Tour

Cape Town

Activity Description

A route of meticulously selected wine estates, offering you a variety of farms showcasing our unique wine culture. Qualified private knowledgeable guide in an air-conditioned vehicle. The tour will either have 4 wine estates in Stellenbosch or 4 wine estates in Franschhoek & Stellenbosch. Indulge in local treats, cheese and wine pairing, chocolate and wine pairing as well as cellar and vineyard tours.

Our first stop is Villiera wine estate, famous for its award winning Cap Classique wines (Champaign). Our guide takes you into the vineyard, walking you through the history of wine and the process of vine growing, you will then get taken “behind the scenes” for a cellar tour, learning the art of wine making. We then head back for an informative wine tasting experience, with your Wine Lord taking you through the steps of how to REALY appreciate wine. Other stunning wines will also be sampled along with Biltong (local dried cured meat) pairing.

Our next estate is the iconic Mitre’s Edge estate, famous for its award winning wines. We sit down with Lola the Winemaker/Owner, each wine paired with a selected cheese.

For our third estate, we do a guided drive through Stellenbosch (second oldest town in SA) to a family run farm called Middelvlei. Surrounded by vineyards, here we enjoy a typical South African braai (barbeque) lunch and a taste of their unique wines. After lunch you would get the chance to sample some “wine in the making” straight from the barrel/tanks.

From Middelvlei we head onto the unique Lovane estate with its basement cellar and exceptional wines. This is quite a favourite amongst our guests and totally of the beaten tourist track. We pair amazing wines with locally made chocolate.

Our last stop takes us to the age old Annandale estate, dating back 300 years. From their old vintage wines, rustic old cape Dutch style farm house and the legends that goes along with this icon. Another favourite amongst locals!

After having seen amazing landscapes, tasting plenty of wines, and most of all experienced the real culture of SA wine!, you will be dropped off at your accommodation between 17h00 and 18h00 by your Wine Lord.

Customer Reviews

We had the best tour ever! Our guide was excellent from the start. I hate that I have now forgotten his name. But we visited 4 wineries, which was more than enough. The cheese and chocolate pairings were excellent! We had a private tour so we were able to customize a few things. The guide even checked on us the following day due to some unfortunate news that we received during the tour. He gave us suggestions on what to do later. He was the absolute best and it felt like family driving us around on that day. We went on Saturday April 2. I wish South Africa was an easy trip for us from the US if so I would bring my mom on this tour, she would love it! Don't think twice just book the tour, you will not regret it. One of our better tours on our trip. Thank you! - Myesha

Truly wonderful private wine tour! Sharif was a lovely and knowledgeable guide, and I can honestly say this is the best wine tour I've taken. Excellent! - Nicholas

I took a private wine tour with my wife and (adult) daughter. We visited several wine estates and had lunch at one of our stops. The selection of wineries visited was made by our guide to cater to the types of wine that my wife prefers. We had a fantastic day. The selections were perfect, and we enjoyed meeting our guide as much as we enjoyed the tour itself. - Henry

We have had a wonderful time with our guide. He told and learned us a lot about the history of the region and of course the winemaking. The estates we visited were really nice and well organised. The wine was delicious with great food pairings. Hope to visit this wineregion again some day. - Paul

We had an extraordinary tour with Wine Flies. The tour guide was extremely attentive and professional and looked after us well during the whole day. You could tell that the whole tour was hand-picked and benefited from years of experience. As we ourselves have only a limited knowledge of wine, the combination of information and pleasure was just right and definitely gave us a taste for it. With many thanks to David Bate for the organization and to Wine Flies for the execution of the tour! Lona & Luca - Dr
