My wife and me enjoyed a brilliant day in the Cape Winelands courtesy of our tour with Wine Escapes. Our guide John, picked us up from our hotel in the morning and took us on an exclusive tour, tailored to our specific wine tastes and interests.
We visited two vineyards in the morning, and then a third for lunch, finishing the day with a cheese-and-wine pairing. It was great having John as our guide, he has great passion and knowledge for wine and was able to answer all of our questions and provided great insights into the workings and histories of the vineyards we visited as well as the wines we tasted.
As for the wines we got to taste: Wow! It's a great touch by Wine Escapes to take on board your wine preferences prior to organising the tour. As a result we got to taste some incredible examples of the wines we like (including the best Shiraz in the world - which was pretty much worth the cost of the tour on its own!!), as well as examples of wines we might not have previously considered but that were a good match to our palate nonetheless.
In my opinion there is no better way of exploring the Cape Winelands than a tour with Wine Escapes. The tour was informative, relaxed, personal and exclusive and John was an excellent guide; friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. If you like wine, and you're visiting South Africa, a tour with them is a must and will certainly be top of our itinerary should we ever visit again.
