For our wine tours, we offer you a blank canvas (either full or half day) where you get to tell us who you are, what interests you; your wine style or grape variety preferences as well as any other interest you may have. Eg. you may have a penchant for bubblies (sparkling wines), and that is all you want to taste. Great! We’ll design a tour for you where you visit some of our top Cap Classique houses; Only drink white wine? No problem; You and your travelling companion/s have different tastes? We’ve got you covered; Love food/chocolate/cheese? You will not believe the culinary joys at your fingertips; You want to combine wine and peninsula in one day? No worries; And so on and so on. We are here to design the ultimate experience for you, and our prices are quite reasonable. Please take a look at our What’s To Do in Cape Town page for some ideas.

Tastings are not included in our tour prices, as many visitors are not aware that most wineries do not charge for tastings if they purchase wine at the tasting rooms. We also prefer to give our clients the option to select which tastings they would like to do – where relevant (many tasting rooms offer various tasting options), or often our clients prefer to share a tasting. If we include the tastings in our prices, then our clients would have paid for tastings unnecessarily.
Tasting fees vary from winery to winery, but could be from no charge, R25pp, R60pp up to R100pp or even R250pp (some of these higher fees would be for eg. chocolate and wine pairing, premium wines etc.)
