We got picked up in the early morning and went to 5 wineries. They all were beautiful locations with magnificent views the wines tasted the amazing, the food was also good and you also had the option to buy wine and cheese (they even had a cooler in the car to store it). We had a beautiful day and enjoyed also the company of the other people in the group who booked the trip.

We had a great day on this tour. You got to try so many wines (18 in total!) and some were paired with cheeses. The lunch was really good and the winery estates were all different in size and style, which was nice to see. Overall it was fantastic value for money.

Ein wunderschöner Tag. Wir wurden pünktlich abgeholt, es ging noch zu zwei Stationen und der Bulli war voll. Lauter gut gelaunte Leute, die einen schönen Tag haben wollten. Wir besuchten wie versprochen 4 Weingüter, wir hatten eine Weinprobe mit korrespondierendem Käse, was wir noch nie erlebt hatten und sehr spannend fanden, und eine Weinprobe mit einer Schokoladenprobe, die auch einen faszinierenden Einfluss auf den Wein hatte. Aber die Geschichten, die wir rund um die Weingüter und dadurch auch die Geschichte Südafrikas erfuhren, waren das, was diesen Tag unvergesslich machten. Den Namen unseres Guides können wir leider nicht angeben - Thierris? Aber nicht er allein sondern auch die Mitarbeiter der Weingüter boten uns einen großen Einblick in Südafrika und seine Geschichte. Ein rundum gelungener Tag - natürlich auch wegen der netten Menschen in unserer Truppe.
