During this tour, we visit estates that are leaders in this field and contributing in diverse ways. We visit Organic and biodynamic wine producers to hear their stories and to taste their wines.

On the southern coast of the African continent 120km to the west of Cape Town lies a quaint seaside fishing village that is home to the whales who annually return to its waters when calving and the equally impressive Hermanus Golf Course. South Africa’s premiere course architect, Peter Matkovich recently had the chance to play an important role in upgrading the clubs existing 18 holes to an impressive 27 holes and he grabbed it with both hands.
This tasting program introduces young and old wine estates and wine making styles across the spectrum from light crisp wines to complex and robust red blends. We learn about South African wines as well as how to pair wine with food. Your guide Jim, is South African, he speaks English and Swedish and is a certified tourist guide for all 9 provinces for history, culture and nature as well.
The Garden Route & the Cape Winelands are iconic South African destinations. However some places are rather crowded and, to be honest, more tourist traps than fantastic experiences. In this itinerary, we’ve excluded these and focussed on the things that these icons do best: exceptional nature experiences, good food & wine and unusual wildlife. You will explore both well-known destinations and hidden gems. All accommodation is 3-4 star, and picked for its unique locations as well as comfort.
