Description

Discover the Western Cape and tailor your tour with an international consulting winemaker. If you’re new to wines of the Cape, your preferences will be worked out at the first tasting and you will be guided accordingly from there.
 
Then you can layer your tour with other themes like the Grande Dames, the garagistes, the bohemian, the high-tech, the biodynamic, the ethical, architectural or those housing international art collections. But there will always be wine at hand, and beautiful vistas.

Organized by

Jonathan Snashall

In 2001 Jonathan qualified as a winemaker and set about flying winemaking with vintages in New Zealand and Europe, returning to the Cape to represent International Wine Services. His lover later ran off to London so he set off in hot pursuit under the guise of doing a Master of Wine, but he neither regained her affections nor fell in love with the Institute of Masters of Wine so, once again, he returned to the Cape. Jonathan’s heart was soon mended by red wine’s resveratrol and he now consults, writes, judges, lectures, and bathes in wine.
