Stellenbosch Wine Tour from Cape Town
- Get inside tips from a local
- Great overview and orientation of the city
- Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour
On a walking tour around the city center, your guide will tell you about some of the history of this ancient city and explain how it came to be synonymous with great South African wine. Admire the abundant Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture as you walk along Stellenbosch’s leafy, tree-lined streets. The city is known locally as Eikestad, meaning ‘city of oaks,’ because of the numerous oak trees that line its secluded streets.
Continue to one of the nearby historic wine estates for a wine-tasting session with your expert guide. The exact winery visited will change depending on availability on the day of your tour, but possible estates include Charmony, KWV Wines, Merelust Estate or Uitkyk Estate. Sample local Pinotage, a red wine grape that prides itself on being South Africa’s signature variety, and learn about the Stellenbosch wine region’s Mediterranean climate and different soils that help create its highly regarded fine wine.
After an hour at the wine estate, hop back on board your luxury coach for the scenic journey back to Cape Town.

Perfect if you have limited time, and just want an introduction to the wine area around Cape Town. It does take an hour to get there from central Cape Town, but we did visit 2 wine estates and sampled about 4 or 5 different wines at both.

This tour was so well organized. I went to two different wine estates and tasted about 12 different wines. The driver was extremely informative and entertaining. Scenery was breathtaking. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Cape Town!
