Guests will be met at any location of their choice in Cape Town. After a drive of about 50 minutes, the tour arrives at Franschhoek, located in one of the most picturesque valleys of the Cape. The town of Franschhoek owes its existence to the first French settlers who worked the valley in the 18th century.

Time will be devoted to exploring the town and the memorial to the French Huguenots. The memorial is set in lovely gardens against a backdrop of imposing mountains. Thereafter a visit is made to three fine wine estates of the Franschhoek Wine Route, all which are internationally recognized for the exceptional quality of their wines. All the noble cultivars and classic styles are on show here, from superb whites such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon and Chenin Blanc to the rich reds of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Merlot.

During the tour of the wine estates, the process of wine making and aging is explained in some detail by a local wine maker. Guests will have the opportunity to sample a range of wines that are produced at each of the estates. The tour then makes its way back to Cape Town in the late afternoon.
