Highlights
    What to Expect
    Receive a morning pickup from your accommodations in Cape Town, traveling by private vehicle to the Cape Winelands region for your tastings at four of the area’s top wineries.

    Stop first at Meerlust, known as one of South Africa’s top wine producers since its founding in the 18th century. You’ll get to enjoy a sample of Meerlust’s “Rubicon” during your tasting, a wine which recently earned a score of 92 by wine connoisseur Robert Parker. Continue to Kanonkop, a winery located along the slopes of Simonsberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. Make sure to taste Kanonkop’s pinotage, which was recognized as one of Platters Guide’s “wines of the year” for 2015.

    Your next visit is Muratie, where you’ll savor your wine selections inside the winery’s atmospheric cellar adorned by paintings of the previous owner’s lover. Finish up with one more stop at Rust en Vrede, one of the first wineries to dedicate itself exclusively to the cultivation of red wine grapes. Known for being the first South African wine to be recognized on the “Top 100 Wines of the World” list, it’s also earned acclaim for being served at the Nobel Peace Prize event for South African Nelson Mandela.

    At the end of the tasting trip, receive a drop-off back at your accommodations in Cape Town.
