The Cape Winelands in the Western Cape of South Africa are home to some of the oldest and most world-renowned wine estates in the world. Some even date back 300 years!
From just 20-minutes out of Cape Town your clients can travel through historic towns, little hamlets and Cape Dutch farmsteads, all of which provide world-class South African wines. In summer and autumn (October – April), the vineyards are at their most scenic with lush full vines. Harvest of the grapes is normally from January – March and this is when your clients can see the grapes being processed through the cellars.
Wine tasting can be enjoyed on its own, or pairings such as wine and chocolate pairing, wine and food, wine and ice-cream, wine and cupcakes, even wine and pizza pairing. Some of the most popular wine towns in South Africa include Constantia, just 20-minute drive from Cape Town, Stellenbosch just a 45-minute drive and Franschhoek, about an hour’s drive.
Top selling tips:
Cape winelands can be seen in so many different ways; in Stellenbosch there is the Vine Hopper, and in Franschhoek you have the Franschhoek Wine Tram, both are hop on hop off services that allow visitors to enjoy the wine and not have to drive and can be pre-booked.
As well as the more popular wine towns, you can also consider the likes of Hermanus where visitors can pair wine tasting with whale watching or Wellington or Paarl that are set further north towards the famous Route 62.
