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.

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

Had a really lovely day and the tour was so well organised. We where taken away from the tourist traps and meet authentic wine gurus doing the work they love. Highly recommend this tour and the company, we will be visiting again. - Tim Barnby


Excellent guide that was punctual, accomodating and lovely. The wineries were also a great choice. Overall however, our experience was made by our wine lord! - Guru Sandhu


We did the classic private tour, and we couldn't be happier. Jakobus was an outstanding guide, and we really enjoyed each stop along our tour. He was very passionate and knowledgeable, teaching us all of the things that make South African wine unique and delicious. Would highly recommend. - Jacob Partain


Our Classic Private Wine Tour with Wine Flies was absolutely amazing! They picked us up and dropped us off at our Air B&B and we spent the day visiting 5 different wineries. Each one was unique and provided us a special tasting experience. Our driver was incredibly knowledgeable and made our day absolutely perfect. He even stopped off at Van Ryn's so we could grab a bottle of that fabulous 15 yr brandy as we were nearby at one of the wineries. We would definitely do this or a similar Wine Tour with Wine Flies again on our next visit to South Africa. - Chad Zemer


The classic private tour with Wineflies was great fun. Visiting and tasting at a few smaller producers was exactly what we were looking for and the quality was high. The freedom to take as little or as much time as we liked and to be able to interact directly with the producers was also good, this would not be so simple with a larger group. The food provided was good and well timed. Thank you for a great day out. - Mark Mitchell
