Wine Flies is passionate about (good) wine! Which is a great starting point for a wine-tour operator. The company strives to provide its guests with memorable and unique wine-tasting experiences in historic Stellenbosch… so that you’ll never feel like a faceless number on one of its tours!
The Stellenbosch Wine Route
The scheduled day tours – which run from Monday to Sunday – take guests to a selection of estates depending on availability – some prominent and some lesser-known – including Middelvlei Wine Estate, Lovane Boutique Wine Estate, Villiera Wines, Mitre’s Edge Wine Estate and Vergenoegd Löw Wine Estate.
The R975 all-inclusive ticket includes a visit to five estates – with wine-tastings, a cellar tour, and pairings thrown in! A tour highlight is a traditional (and light) South African lunch.
And then, after your fun day in the Winelands, you’ll be picked up and dropped off in the city centre. Transport costs are included in the ticket price.
Good to know Wear comfortable clothes, bring a camera, sunglasses and cash (in case you want to purchase wine, treats and snacks along the way).
More great tours
But the fun needn’t stop there because Wine Flies also offers more customised, private tours. Its Wine Lord Private Tour, for example, does a similar route, but as a bonus, you’ll drive around Stellies in your own tour bus – with air-conditioning, of course!
Other cool tour offerings include It’s Your Move, Romeo Tour; Fauna, Flora and Fermentation Tour; Gourmet Tour; Classic Tour, Meet the Winemaker and Custom Tour.
Wine Flies can also custom-design a tour to your exact specifications – its team’s extensive knowledge of the Mother City means you can tailor-make your route to include Cape Town, too.
So, next time you have some out-of-towners that you’d like to impress, book a Wine Flies tour, and let the good times roll.
