Your day starts with a visit to Paarl where you will be able to enjoy the beauty of the valley and see the ‘Pearl of Paarl’ high above the valley before experiencing a wine tasting and cellar tour at one of the local estates.
From Paarl, continue to the beautiful village of Franschhoek which was founded in 1688 by French immigrants fleeing the Huguenot religious persecution in Europe. A memorial in the town commemorates the arrival of these early settlers who helped develop the wines sought after by Napoleon, Bismarck, and royalty such as Edward VII. Here we will stop for lunch (at own expense) and another wine tasting at a local vineyard.
You’ll then head to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country’s wine region. A gracious blend of 18th-century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings is evident on Dorp Street, where massive oaks still shade original water furrows. Enjoy a final wine tasting before returning to Cape Town.
