A winding road through oak and poplar forests will take you to a wine estate nestled in the valley bottom, here you can take in the stunning views while doing wine tasting of award winning wines on an island in a lake.
On the way out of the valley, you will stop at another wine estate which sports beautiful grounds and historic Cape Dutch architecture. Here we will do a cellar tour before we start our Chocolate and Wine pairing that will make your taste buds tingle.

Customer Reviews

Our cycle tour through Stellenbosch was absolutely fantastic! What a wonderful way to see this beautiful town and scenery. The two wine tours we did really topped it off, especially the Lanzerac tasting with the delicious chocolate! Marshall, our tour guide was knowledgeable, really friendly and ensured that he did everything he could to make our day extremely enjoyable (even when it started raining!!) I would fully recommend doing this tour. - Paula Blake-Pead


We have had a great adventure family tour in Stellenbosch. Everything was well arranged, a very good guide who could tell us lots! He was very good in feeling exactly what we needed with the two kids as also being to do everything on time. The two wine tasting we both excellent and especially the chocolate one, which we have never experienced before. Thank you very much for this great day! - Nadine Klugt
