HIGHLIGHTS

  • Experience the subtle differences between wines produces in higher and lower altitudes
  • Design the itinerary to accommodate your interests
Don't miss the chance to taste fine wine produced from grapes grown in the cooler parts of South Africa. Book your day-long tour of the Elgin wine region in the Western Cape. Located 350 metres above the sea level, the wine-growing area has around 800 hectares of vines divided among 16 farms, most of which are conveniently close to each other, making for an easy tour.

Their wines are, quite simply, somewhat different from their 'lowland' neighbours in the Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl areas of the Western Cape. They benefit from the region's cooler climate, due to which the grapes take longer to ripen on their vines and carry an elegance and finesse that typifies handcrafted wines.

From a learning perspective, the full-day experience will also provide an opportunity, subject to availability and prior appointment, for you to take a cellar tour, meet the wine makers, their assistants and viticulturists to get a more nuanced perspective on the effect of a cool climate on grapes.

Discuss your wine preferences with your guide prior to commencing the tour in order to put together an itinerary. However, you also have the chance to modify the itinerary with your guide as the tour progresses. Visit up to six wineries in the Elgin wine region. While lunch is on your own account, your tour guide will always be there to recommend and arrange a lunch venue for you.
