South Africa's 'food and wine capital.'


Whether your glass is half full or half empty, there is clearly room for more wine, and the Western Cape is one of the world’s best places for a top up. Spend 2 nights exploring South Africa’s increasingly famous Winelands district.

Neighbouring Stellenbosch, Franschhoek has secured its reputation for fine food and wine, with some calling it the culinary capital of South Africa. That reaches beyond wine to encompass excellent restaurants and a world famous Patisserie specialising in Belgian pralines.

Stellenbosch Vine Hopper 1 Day

The Vine Hopper is the only way to experience the Stellenbosch wine Route by hopping on anywhere and hopping on any time on our route! The Vine Hopper has 3 routes with each of the routes visiting 6 very different wine estates in the Stellenbosch region. The farms all have their unique styles and attractions that can be enjoyed while being on the Vine Hopper route. Southern Route - Some of the highlights of the Southern route include seeing some wildlife at Vredenheim, enjoying a Brandy Tasting tour at the Van Ryn Brandy Distillery where the cooper shows off his ancient art of barrel making, go pet an Eagle at Spier or just relax with a chocolate and wine tasting at Bilton wines. Kleine Zalze is always a great way to end the day with a delicious wine tasting overlooking the Stellenbosch Mountain. Northern Route - On the Northern Route you could visit the Bergkelder with its spectacular maturation cellars below Pappegaaiberg, or have a relaxing lunch and tasting at Beyerskloof, famous for its Pinotage. Simonsig with its great wine and views or Knorhoek, a family owned and operated wine estate with a small intimate wine tasting area. For the more energetic, you could always rent a bike or go on a hike at Delvera after doing an olive tasting at the Olive shed. Delheim is the last farm on the route and a great way to end the day with a glass of Spatzendreck and views to be remembered!
