Wine tastings at most wine estates are very low threshold. You do not have to make a reservation and a tasting of 3 to 5 wines costs around R 40 to R 80. With some estates you can also enjoy a lunch or picnic, so reservation is required.
The most famous wine region is around the village of Stellenbosch, but the Western Cape has much more to offer in terms of wine. The wine routes that you can visit during your trip are:
- Helderberg: Somerset West and Gordon’s Bay
- Swartland: even Malmesbury and Riebeek Kasteel
- Hemel en Aarde (Hermanus)
