Wine Tasting in South Africa

March 20th, 2007

The Cape Winelands of South Africa are beautiful. The wines from the region are also excellent.

While in the winelands areas including Stellenbosch, Paarl, Constantia, Swartland, Durbanville and Franschhoek, a popular activity for both locals and residents is to go for a wine tasting or two at many of the top class wine producers. They are usually open to the public during the week, on Saturdays and some on Sundays. For a small fee, you can taste a few wines, whites, reds, ports, champagne – read Cape Classique, sorry, and decide whether or not you want to purchase a bottle or two from the estate itself. The grounds of the estate are often pristine, with mountain settings and great views. Some also have restaurants where you can enjoy a pleasant meal, a bottle of the estate’s finest and good company.

My wife and I go wine tasting occassionally, I don’t taste though cause I am driving 😉 . It’s a lot of fun, a great way to see the beautiful Cape Winelands and savour a glass or two of South Africa’s finest.
