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 had the best tour ever! Our guide was excellent from the start. I hate that I have now forgotten his name. But we visited 4 wineries, which was more than enough. The cheese and chocolate pairings were excellent! We had a private tour so we were able to customize a few things. The guide even checked on us the following day due to some unfortunate news that we received during the tour. He gave us suggestions on what to do later. He was the absolute best and it felt like family driving us around on that day. We went on Saturday April 2. I wish South Africa was an easy trip for us from the US if so I would bring my mom on this tour, she would love it! Don't think twice just book the tour, you will not regret it. One of our better tours on our trip. Thank you! - Myesha Johnson


Truly wonderful private wine tour! Sharif was a lovely and knowledgeable guide, and I can honestly say this is the best wine tour I've taken. Excellent! - Nicholas Huddleston


I took a private wine tour with my wife and (adult) daughter. We visited several wine estates and had lunch at one of our stops. The selection of wineries visited was made by our guide to cater to the types of wine that my wife prefers. We had a fantastic day. The selections were perfect, and we enjoyed meeting our guide as much as we enjoyed the tour itself. - Henry


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
