PRIVATE WINE TOURS
We differ from other wine tour operators simply because of our connections and hands on experience within the wine industry. If you want to meet the winemakers or estate owners then chances are we can arrange it for you. With over 20 yrs of experience in the industry, and a relentless passion and knowledge of Cape wines, Richard knows the intricacies and the hidden gems that others may not. We guarantee your day will be informative and interesting and you’ll come away feeling uplifted by the sheer beauty of the Cape winelands and her fabulous wines.
WHERE WILL YOU VISIT?Luxury wine touring could include Constantia and Stellenbosch, with their blend of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture, and Franschhoek, famous for the cultural and agricultural influences brought by the French Huguenot settlers in 1688. If you spend a few days with us then we could also take in the exciting wine regions to the south east of Cape Town (Elgin, Hemel en Aarde and Walker Bay) – a little further away but well worth it for the new and exciting wines now being produced there.
