Far From The Maddening Crowd


Today we shall taste away from the maddening crowds climbing over SIR LOWRY’S PASS to the beautiful valley o fELGIN – South Africa’s apple capital.  Again, we have dozens of fine estates to visit. Meet Sean, the dynamic winemaker of South Hill who will enthuse you with his Sauvignon Blanc. A gourmet treat awaits you at the farm’s award winning restaurant – The Venue – where Chef Gordon Manuel rules.

More private estates beckon, perhaps Highland Road & Almenkerk. Finally, a BRANDY TASTING and cellar tour at OUDE MOLEN DISTILLERY before returning to Cape Town.

DURATION – 8 hours    INCLUDES: 3 x tastings    EXCLUDES: Lunch

Steeped in history you will experience the real Cape country atmosphere. Again bypassing PAARL we shall visit WELLINGTON sampling WINE and OLIVES then onto TULBAGH. The drive is spectacular. TULBAGH emulates FRANSCHHOEK without the bustle. A dozen excellent wine farms summon us, plus, there is chocolate, cheese, olives and a dried fruit farm to tempt us. Perambulate down Church Street. Breathe in the mountain air while admiring the Cape Dutch architecture. A visit to the quaint Church museum is a must.

Bypassing PAARL we will climb over the breath-taking Du Toits Kloof Pass, 820-metres, stopping for photographs where your lens takes you. A dozen wine farms await your palate in the Breedekloof Valley. Then onto the Town of WORCESTER. The KLEINPASIE living open air museum and the BOTANICAL GARDENS offer a respite from imbibing. If time permits and YOUR desire we can continue our exploration to ROBERTSON, now one of our most productive wine regions.

Again, so much to see and do. It all depends on YOU!
