Itinerary

Day 1-3

Welcome to Cape Winelands

As South Africa's second largest wine region, Paarl has more to offer than just the famous Taal Monument. There are various wineries around the region that specialize in chenin blancs and reds (these grapes grow naturally in the hot climate of the region), so take a stroll on the wild side and enjoy the sauvignon blanc and chardonnay purists. Whether they test lesser-known grapes or stick to tradition and produce fine single varietals, you will learn everything unique and enjoyable at these vineyards. A chocolate and wine pairing is a must. Apart from wine, it's possible to find picnic spots with stunning views, mountain-biking trails for the whole family, and mouthwatering food and wine pairings.
