South Africa - Western Cape (Cape Town)

An easy drive from Cape Town, the Wineland’s dramatic mountains stand guard over a quilt of working vineyards, elegant Cape Dutch estates and quaint towns boasting top restaurants, hotels and spas. Sample some of the region’s award-winning wine offerings, stroll through exquisitely maintained gardens or explore art galleries and antique shops in the oak-lined streets of the local towns.

The buzzing university village of Stellenbosch was named after the Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel and, as the historic hub of the Winelands, it is surrounded by around 200 wineries. Spier’s treetop dining platform provides a unique experience, and world-renowned wines Lanzerac, Simonsig, Neethlingshof, Boschendal, and Meerlust are a must for wine tastings. Franschhoek, a charming town with French Huguenot heritage, is arguably the culinary headquarters of the country and home to the creative genius of several resident chefs. Framed by a majestic backdrop of the Helderberg Mountains, Paarl lies peacefully nestled amongst vineyards laden with the harvest’s finest offerings.
