We are specialists in creating tailor-made itineraries for the discerning traveller - on an individual basis or as a part of a select group. Various tours such as bespoke wine tastings and visits, whale sighting excursions, golf and wine tours, luxury train rides, wild safaris through the winelands of South Africa, as well as gourmet lunches and picnics in the best vineyards of the country, can be organized according to your preference. We organize wine programmes throughout South Africa, and each one of our tours can be conceived entirely for leisure or educational nature, depending on your needs.
As one of the most prominent wine-producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere, South Africa has a history of over 300 years in winemaking that dates back as far as the early Dutch settlers in the 1650s. South African wine regions are mostly situated around the luscious yet rugged landscape of the Western Cape where a plethora of mountains, valleys and plateaus together with a distinctly Mediterranean climate allow vineyards to produce a diverse range of styles.
Pinotage, a blend of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut that is almost exclusive to the wine regions of South Africa, is the country’s signature wine. Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also widely planted while the reputation of South Africa’s Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc has grown in popularity on the international stage.
Although classed as a New World country, many wines are evenly poised between New and Old World styles – often produced using New World techniques but having more in common stylistically with their Old World counterparts.
South Africa wine regions have become the ninth-largest producers of wine in the world, while the lure of an African adventure – where wine tours can accompany breathtaking vineyards, exciting safaris and memorable cuisine – has brought a surge in wine tourism to the heel of Africa.
