After lunch you would get the chance to sample some “wine in the making” straight from the barrel/tanks.
 
From Middelvlei you will head onto the unique Lovane estate, with its basement cellar and exceptional wines. This is totally of the beaten tourist track. Taste amazing wines as well as locally made chocolate.
 
The last stop takes you to the Vergenoegd estate, home to the Faure family since the early 1700’s. Discover their old vintage wines, beautiful old cape Dutch style manor house and the duck parade, another favourite amongst locals!
 
After having seen amazing landscapes, enjoyed plenty of wines, and most of all experienced the real culture of South Africa wine, you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
