This was our 2nd experience with Katie and most certainly not the last. Katie is fun, very knowledgeable about wines and she knows a lot of other stuff too! Had a fantastic morning with her visiting Hartenberg and Uva Mira wine estates. She gets to know her "regular" customers very well and she will direct you to the places she knows you would enjoy -which I really appreciated. She introduces you to wines she knows you would like and she completety won me over on a specific 2006 Chardonnay - as I am purely a red wine fanatic! Furthermore she actually bought the bottle of Chardonnay and shared it with us as it was not on the tasting list! Now that deserves a big "Wow" and a even bigger thank you! If you are "new" to wine tours and tasting.... leave it up to Katie! You will have the best day of your life with her!

“Excellent service and value”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

I was recommended to Katie by a restaurant owner. I have lived in Cape Town for many years but never made use of a "wine guide". I thought that the process may be intrusive and take me to places that I may not want to go to. How wrong could I be!! The Wine Fairy took a group of us to a variety of estates ending in an amazing meal with wine pairing that we are all still enthusing about. Katie has a wonderful personality to go with her knowledge and connections in the industry - all adding up to a highly pleasurable experience. An excellent service. We will do it again.

The Wine Fairy ... Organised, Fun & Knowledgable! We had a great day, and really felt that we learned something, as well as having a briliant day. Fairy knows the perfect venues for spectacular views and great wine. She knows the farms and they know her, so we got special treatment wherever we went.... Thank you FAIRY x

“if you want to tour the wine country THIS is the woman to take you there”
Reviewed February 15, 2010

we had a really lovely afternoon with katie. if you don't know a lot about wine, she will teach you. if you know a lot about wine, i am sure katie can still teach you. (she has a masters in oenology!) not at all intimidating, i think she is the perfect person to take a group out to have fun, learn about the local wines, and just enjoy the excursion. i think if you have more expertise , her knowlege of wine, wineries, and the region will also make for a successful day out. either way HIGHLY recommend
