Prepare-se para desfrutar de uma viagem diurna pelas fantásticas Vinícolas de Stellenbosch, que ficam a cerca de uma hora da Cidade do Cabo. Comece com uma excursão guiada e degustações na Ernie Els Wines. Em seguida, faça uma visita à vinícola Marianne, onde variedades locais, como o pinotage, acompanham porções da culinária regional, com o biltong. Saboreie uma deliciosa sobremesa com harmonização de vinhos na Clos Malverne Wine Farm. Em seguida, encerre sua tarde com uma caminhada pela Babylonstoren Wine Farm para outra degustação, caso queira (não inclusa no preço).
We had a wonderful day seeing a part of the cape that we would not have if not for this tour. Our guide, Andrew, was excellent. Our pickup at the hotel was right on time. Andrew did everything throughout the day to make sure that we were comfortable. Our first stop was at a Dutch wine farm where we were able to wander around the lavender fields, see the farm animals and how the farm operates.
Our stop for lunch was great food which ended with an unusual paring of ice cream and wine. Our final stop of the day may have been a favorite, Ernie Els Winery. We enjoyed relaxing on the patio where there was a chipping green set up. All of us had multiple attempts of making the hole with one shot. It was a fun way to end the day.
Our driver, Gerhard, was very knowledgeable of the region. We started out at Ernie Ells winery and were totally amazed at the gardens and facility. The next two after that were not as impressive. Our second winery we felt that we had to wait on the staff more than expected. Loved the idea at the Stollenbosch Hills of pairing the meats with the wines. The whole trip was relaxed and we mostly moved at our own speed. Even Gerhard was OK with that!
