We depart the city for scenic drive towards the Boland Mountains and Cape winelands where we will explore some of the historic wine estates.

Award-winning wines are produced at many of these estates, some of which have homesteads dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries and are set amidst breath-taking views of the Simonsberg, Stellenboschberg and Helderberg Mountains. The area is famous for high quality dry white and red wines from noble grape varieties.

We visit some of these farms to taste their wares, some of which also offer the opportunity to pair wines with cheese, olive oils or chocolate.

Our final stop is Stellenbosch, South Africa's second-oldest town, providing another glimpse of classic 17th-century Cape style, with a chance to browse quaint Dorp Street and the many museums, galleries and shops of this lovely university town.
