All aboard the Wine Bus

What do you get when you cross a 4×4 jeep with wine tasting, refreshments and a gourmet picnic lunch? The Wine Bus of course!

An experienced guide will take 2-4 passengers to some of the oldest and most scenic areas of the Cape so be sure to bring your camera. The tour includes visits to a variety of wineries including Rynke, de Morgenzo, Jordan, Uitewyke, Beau Joubert. Plus, you can take a dip in the natural water spring and rock pool which has supplied the region with fresh, clear water for hundreds of years too.

You will also receive a free bottle of wine from one of the wineries and if you wish to travel in a group larger than 4 people we will add extra jeeps and travel in convoy.

This full day trip is priced at £120 per two people and runs every week throughout the year.

The Wine and Music tour

If you’d like to pursue your love of South African wine then the county’s tourism board offer a great selection of Wine and Music Tours to tickle your fancy. However, you must bear in mind that most events are held in rural areas and have little or no access to cash points. Make sure you get your travel money arranged before your visit.

The Amphitheatre at Paul Cluver’s wine and farming business is set in a towering Eucalyptus forest just 45 minutes from Cape Town International airport. The remarkable open-air arena holds up to 600 people who can listen to exclusive performances from some of the best musicians in the region.

Wine from the estate will be on sale whilst you revel in the musical talents of the performers. Also, if you get peckish fresh food is available onsite or you can pre-order a tasty picnic from the Fresh Restaurant. If you’re looking for a magical experience and drinking exquisite wines under the stars then Paul Cluver’s is the place to be.

The events vary in price and are held at selected times throughout the year – click here for more event details.
