1. Robertson: Wine Appreciation Tour from Cape Town
A transfer vehicle will pick you up from your accomodation in Cape Town and take you to Robertson. Here you will book into your accommodation and hop on-board an open-air safari vehicle, which is the best way to discover the Robertson Wine Valley with its unspoiled views of rolling vineyards and mountains. The tour guide will take you on a wine appreciation tour to five wine estates. At your first stop you will get to meet a winemaker that will enlighten you about the terrior of the region and take you on a cellar tour. This will give you an understanding of the art of wine-making and the story inside the bottle. From here, you will move onto the next estate where you will discover a historical underground cellar. The staff will present you with a wine tasting by candle light, pairing the wine with fruit preserves, chocolate, art, and music. You will also get the opportunity to compare the different taste in the wines when drinking from a crystal and then a normal wine glass. You will carry on to the next stop where a picnic style lunch of local cheeses, paâes, and meats with fresh bread can be enjoyed on a lazy river boat cruise. From here, you will continue to a nearby estate where you will discover the winemaker in you by blending, bottling, and labeling your very own wine creation. The tour then ends at the last estate where you will get to pick a wine and food pairing platter of your choice to entice the palate with wonderful tasting sensations. Finally, you will be returned to your accommodation.
