Embark on a tantalizing tour of the Stellenbosch Winelands on this full-day tour from Cape Town. Stop at Ernie Els Wines to take part in a guided wine tasting. Then, set your taste buds tingling at the Stellenbosch Hills estate, where you'll sample wine paired with biltong (cured meat). Cap your tastings at Clos Malverne, with artisan ice cream that has been developed to perfectly match your wine, before enjoying free time at Babylonstoren, a Cape Dutch wine farm. Numbers limited to 13 on this small-group tour.
Meet your guide at your accommodation in central Cape Town, and then set off in an air-conditioned minivan to begin your full-day tour of the Stellenbosch Winelands. Make your first stop at Ernie Els Wines, a wine estate owned by South African golfer Ernie Els. Take a tour of the winery buildings, including the cellar and trophy room where Els' finest golfing awards are held. Then, take a seat and drink in views of Stellenbosch and the surrounding vineyards and mountains as you taste four wine varietals. Next, continue to the Stellenbosch Hills estate. Here, learn about South Africa's winemaking heritage before savoring four of the estate's finest wine varietals, such as pinotage and merlot blends, each perfectly paired with biltong. Following your roughly 30-minute tasting, soothe your sweet tooth at Clos Malverne, where you'll pair your wine tasting with artisan ice cream. Discover how the head chef at the estate's restaurant develops new flavors and aromas each season to match the wine, and then sample delights such as passion fruit and white chocolate ice cream with sauvignon blanc, or peppermint dark chocolate chip ice cream with a pinotage reserve After, soak up the views during a scenic drive through Stellenbosch's historical center to Babylonstoren, a Cape Dutch wine farm where you'll eat lunch (own expense) and enjoy a wander through the gardens. Should you wish, you can also partake in another wine tasting here (own expense). Your full-day tour then concludes in the late evening with a drop-off back at your Cape Town hotel. Please note: The wine estates visited are subject to change without notice on the day of your tour.
