We take great pride and satisfaction that over time, we have established ourselves as a premium wine and food tour operator.

 

We pride ourselves on consistently exceeding our guests expectations and strive to introduce the Winelands of South Africa to our guests in such a way that they will want to return again and again, while also practising responsible tourism practices and supporting local communities.

 

We offer private, bespoke wine and food experiences​ in most of the scenic Winelands of the Cape.

Several of the wine routes, including Constantia, Durbanville, Darling, Stellenbosch, Helderberg, Paarl, Franschhoek, Wellington and Walker Bay, are within an hour or less easy driving distance from Cape Town. Others, like Breedekloof, Worcester, Robertson, the Little Karoo, Tulbagh, the Swartland, Olifants River and the Northern Cape take you on a slightly longer journey through constantly changing and spectacular landscapes.

 

The various wine routes offer a wide variety of activities, from horseback trails to mountain biking and hiking. The Cape has the best land-based whale watching in the world. Unspoilt beaches, fynbos, spring flowers and abundant birdlife are also among the natural attractions that can be included in a wine safari.

Our wine safaris are for the wine enthusiast - beginner to seasoned quaffer - wanting to delve a little deeper into the world of South African wine. Our tours cater to those looking for an experience that is authentic, more intimate and absolutely more exclusive. Staying away from the typical wine tour itineraries we visit the off-the-beaten track and boutique farms who are producing superior hand crafted wine.

 

Tours are boutique in every sense of the word.

All tours are private and personalised to suit your specific requirements. Tours are informal, fun and set to a relaxed pace. This is for anyone wanting to learn more about wine, wanting to drink really good wine and wanting to share the experience with others who are really passionate about wine.
