The Cape Winelands

The Cape Winelands,is a easy 45 minute drive from Cape Town,and is a popular destination to be included on most of the Cape Town Tours that I design.

While most people like to visit the Cape Winelands areas that are close to Cape Town,ie Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franshoek,we also offer day tours to some of the rural winelands.Less  people,beautiful scenery.We also offer  a combination  of Whale watching and Wine tasting.

While most of the Cape Wineland Tours are done via vehicle,we also offer Biking and Walking Tours in the Cape Winelands.

The Cape Winelands,while so close to Cape Town,offers a slower pace,and adds a countryside feel to the whole Cape Town experience.

We  offer a selection of  Cape Wineland lodging,generally they are in Stellenbosch or Franshoek, smaller boutique Hotels or Bed and breakfast lodging :  Luxury  Cape Winelands Lodging

Cape Winelands

Wine lover or not, a visit to the Cape Winelands is an absolute must as the region is one of breathtaking vistas and majestic mountain backdrops while being steeped in rich culture and history.

Rolling vineyards and quaint Cape Dutch homesteads await you, as well as award-wining wine farms offering some of the country’s best wines.

The winelands are divided into various different regions, each offering their own ‘wine route’. The most popular and well-known are Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington and Paarl.

They  are situated only a short 45 minute drive from Cape Town

Not to be forgotten are the highly acclaimed wine estates in the Constantia Valley. Also located in beautiful surroundings with stunning mountain backdrops, the Constantia Valley boasts some of the oldest estates and homesteads along with award winning wines.

Then there is the  forgotten winelands…the outer winelands we call them.Here the  crowds are much less,the scenery is really beautiful,with valleys of vineyards, surrounded by majestic mountains.

We custom design tours from day tours to  multiple days into these  area. Designed to travel at  your pace,so you can really maximize your stay here.

Cape Town is also home to many old farm style food markets, some of which are also art  and craft markets,a enjoyable combination,held  in varied locations across the  city of Cape Town.

As well there there is a large  old fashioned antique/flea market as well,located  close to a  nice beach area

Leisurely browse stalls as the smells entice you, choose something scrumptious to take home or find a seat in the shade and munch right there.

Enjoy farm-style breakfasts, fresh bread, local olives and olive oil.As well as cupcakes, feta cheese, yoghurt, pancakes, smoked fish and chicken, homemade jams,preserves, confectionery,fresh fruit,vegetables,vegetarian delights,homemade rusks, champagne, paté, quiche, pastries,cakes, bratwurst, pickles, home-brewed organic cider,’moer koffie’,honey and many more gourmet goodies.
We  can combine these food markets  with other day tours such as walks,Table Mountain,Cape Town City Tour, etc.This a good way to mingle and meet locals,and to experience the local tastes/products.
