Wine Tours in Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town boasts of several wine regions where you can enjoy good wine in god-blessed scenery. Though you can't bring home the scenery, bringing a few bottles or cases will be your next best option together with the wine tasting experience of a lifetime.

Paarl - About 45 minutes from the city, Paarl boasts of quality wines with Shiraz seemingly the favorite produce. With more than 20 wineries in this beautiful valley, there will be a wine to suit every taste.

Visit Boland Kelder in the heart of this vast wine land and share their high quality wines which have won them awards at local and international levels. Another award winning wine producer is the Laborie where you can have a taste of their unique brand of desert wine. Bring home some bottles as welcoming gifts but you may want to keep some for yourself first. If you are looking for affordable wines, find them at Landskroon and if you are missing your weekly golf, head for Lindhorst, a little way off Paarl towards Franschhoek.

Not only concentrating on wine alone, you can find a glass blowing studio at Seidelberg Wine Estate. Personalize a carafe for your wine maybe? And just when you thought you've seen and tasted all, think again. A must try are the Kosher wines at Zandwjik which produces Kosher products too.

Franschhoek - Boasting as a culinary centre of South Africa, Franschhoek has a number of award winning wine farms. The list of wines ranges from the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay to the full bodied red of the Merlot and Shiraz, just to name a few. This part of the wine land boasts of the well-known sparkling wines and Ports. You will not be 'lost' for accommodation in the wine lands which caters to touristy needs.

Stay at the The Franschhoek Resort Residence to experience a true wine-tasting tour. Go back in time when you visit Boschendal where winemaking started in the late 1700s. Savour their unique wines aged in their old wine cellars.

Try the award winning Sauvignon Blanc at Franschhoek Vineyards or for the artier, visit the Haute Provence Vineyards where the tasting room boasts an art gallery displaying works of South African artists. Feel like Mediterranean cuisine with your wine? Head for Môreson Matin Soleil where you can have both worlds of exquisite wine tasting infused with Mediterranean gastronomy.
