Get ready to imbibe with a day trip to the stunning Stellenbosch Winelands, about an hour from Cape Town. Start with a morning stroll around Babylonstoren Wine Farm and if you're keen, an early morning wine tasting. Follow it up with a visit to the Marianne estate, where local varietals like pinotage come with samplings of cured meat - 'biltong' a local favourite.  Enjoy a delicious artisan ice-cream and wine pairing at Clos Malverne Wine Farm and cap off your afternoon with a lazy tasting with views toward Table Mountain in the distance at Demorgenzon wine estate.


Meet your guide at your accommodation in central Cape Town, and then set off in an air-conditioned minivan to begin your full-day tour of the Stellenbosch Winelands.

Start with a morning pick-up from your accommodation in Cape Town.

Our wine experts custom-designed this tour to give you a real taste of the winelands region. Sample local produce, learn about flavour profiles and vintages and savour time sitting back and sampling some of South Africa’s finest in countryside views.

The day starts amongst the rustic fruit orchards and country gardens of Babylonstoren Estate where heady, herby smells are carried on the breeze and plump fruits hang ripe on trees. Groups of fatted ducks quack their way underfoot as guests tentatively explore the modest cheesery and handicraft store. In stark contrast to the water-colour-picture setting, the tasting room is a thoroughly modern affair and the wines add to the whimsical feel.

Then, it’s off down country laneways lined with leafy vineyards to the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains and Marianne Estate. Here, the business of wine is a serious affair but the staff are warm and inviting. Their South African terroir and French savoir-faire pays homage to the estate’s Bordeaux heritage and French-style wines.

As morning fades, you’ll meander through farmlands dotted with olives and grapes en-route to the Helderberg Mountains, which perfectly frame the verdant landscape. Clos Malvern is tucked away in a tranquil corner of the winelands. The farm’s reputation for great food and creatively innovative menus draw gourmands from all corners of the globe.

When the wine is flowing, it’s easy to work up a big appetite and your guide is happy to work with you to find the perfect fit – whether it’s a wine farm restaurant or a sunny roadside cafe in Stellenbosch’s old town, just a short hop from the winery. We’ll go with the flow.

The last course on this Taste the Winelands Tour offers spectacular views and a unique wine philosophy that is literally music to the ears (and taste buds!). The owners of DeMorgenzon Wine Estate believe that playing Baroque music, day and night from large speakers in the vineyards has a romantically delicious effect on the grapes, and the flavourful, aromatic depth of these international award-winning wines certainly sings true. DeMorgenzon’s wines strike a good balance between lush fruit and crisp acidity with echoes of the garden in every bottle. You just have to taste it to believe it; the music does something to the wine! On that high note, you'll follow the sun and turn for home.

Your full-day tour then concludes in the late evening with a drop-off back at your Cape Town hotel.

Please note: The wine estates visited are subject to change without notice on the day of your tour. The alternative wine estate will be visited when tasting rooms are closed.
