Enjoy eating and drinking to your heart’s content while your guide does the driving – now THAT’s a good plan!

Somerset West Area

To get your taste buds going, start off with a wine, olive and olive oil tasting outside Somerset West, in the Stellenbosch wine region, which not only produces outstanding red wines from both French and Italian grape varietals, but has also consistently been scoring in the high 90’s out of 100 points in a prestigious annual international olive oil contest in Italy for years.

Stellenbosch and Surrounds

From there, head to a winery at the foot of the Helderberg mountain, also in the Stellenbosch region, for a wine and chocolate pairing.

Three wines are paired with three fine chocolates, specially formulated by the chocolatier in collaboration with the winemaker to complement the individual flavour and character of each wine.

Alternatively six wines with no chocolate – each person can actually choose between the two options.


There are many options for lunch, but if you’ve got this far, you are probably a foodie who would enjoy options like Terroir, Tokara, or the farm-to-table dining experiences at either Boschendal or Babel, subject to availability.

The latter two historic wine estates offer many other pleasant distractions in their magnificent grounds.

Paarl Region

Finish off the day with a cheese and wine pairing in the Paarl wine region.

This can either be done informally, moving between the wine tasting area and the cheese shop at your leisure, or in a more formal tutored tasting in which eight wines are paired with eight kinds of cheese.

The latter option offers higher quality wines but takes longer, so if you are interested, we need to be careful not to run late with our other tastings and lunch.

Options and Alternatives

If time allows, or as an alternative to the cheese and wine tasting, the neighbouring winery includes a collective of small businesses producing wine, craft beer, grappa, fair trade artisanal chocolate, flammkuchen and biltong … if you can still manage!

Alternatively, skip the cheese and wine in order to visit any other winery which appeals to you, or enjoy a stroll in the quaint town of Franschhoek with its quality offering of shops and galleries.
