We head north to Paarl. Our first stop this morning is at Anura Wine Estate for a cheese and wine tasting. We make our way to Franschhoek with a photo stop at the Groot Drakenstein Prison where Nelson Mandela was released in Feb 1990.
The village of Franschhoek nestled amongst the mountains, can easily be mistaken for being in Switzerland. After a short tour of the little town, a second wine tasting will take place in Franschhoek, followed by a lunch stop (own account), and maybe a chance to try some of the fresh trout that Franschhoek is known for.
After lunch the tour continues over the Hells Hoogte Mountain Pass to Stellenbosch. It is easy to understand why Simon van der Stel decided to settle a village amongst the mountains, with the backdrop of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, the white gabled Cape Dutch homesteads and the oak lined streets and lanes all blending in to give this place a charm that will not be forgotten.
The third wine tasting will consist of a cellar tour followed by a Brandy Tasting. We return to Cape Town with amazing photos and fond memories.
Excluded – lunch at Franschhoek is optional and not included in the price.
No wine tasting under 18 years.
