But we could go to wonderful wineries and taste wonderful wines. Everyone can use some form of self-improvement, and that doesn’t just have to mean hitting the gym or cutting carbs.The final winery visit of the day is at Boschendal, one of the oldest wine estates in the country, dating back to the 1600s.
Enjoy your tour’s last wine tasting among the barrels in the cellar before getting back in the minivan for the relaxing drive back to Cape Town. Consequently we awere able to tour the Stellenbosch Museum and really spend some quality time there - it is fascinating.
We also enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Coopmanhuijs Hotel which has excellent food and service.
Next, head for the nearby Paarl wine region to visit the Fairview Wine Estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting session.
Along with the winery’s well-known white wines, nibble on delicious cheeses.
The first stop on your tour is the Muratie wine estate, a local favorite with lots of rustic charm, where you’ll start with something sweet.
At Muratie, sample dessert wine and locally-made chocolate.
I would recommend people to try this tour because you get our of the city and see other areas!
We were met by Andrew at the cruise terminal in Cape Town in a new people carrier.
After your lunch break, visit the La Motte or Haute Cabriere wine estate outside Franschhoek in the Helderberg Mountains.
Take in the splendid views from the winery while you taste their wines and learn how growing wine grapes in the mountains differs from growing them down in the valley.
Stop for lunch in Franschhoek, a short five miles (eight kilometers) away, internationally famous for its gourmet dining options.
