Classic Private Tour

Cape Town

Activity Description

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 Vergenoegd estate, from their old vintage wines, beautiful old cape Dutch style manor house and the duck parade, 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.

  • Itinerary is subject to the wine estates’ availability on the day.

Notes

Truly a unique South African experience.We focus on real and authentic wine farms, their people, local delicacies and the true culture behind the wine lands. Our tours are private and can be customized to your needs.

Meeting and sharing wine with locals, hearing their stories, tasting wine out of old oak barrels, visiting small local farms as well as world famous estates, tasting cheese and other local delicacies, walking through wine cellars and vineyards and tasting various wines will be the order of the day! Enjoy lunch surrounded by rolling vineyards.

You will get to visit world famous estates. BUT even better…as you will also get to taste the wine lands in a more real way by visiting hidden farms only known to locals.

Customer Reviews

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 Robbe


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 David Bate
