Tour Details Summary
Without any delay, we head off to the Stellenbosch wine route to visit The House of J.C. Le Roux. This wine estate is the leading wine estate dedicated exclusively to creating sparkling wine. It was also the first wine estate in South Africa to undertake this endeavor. Using a traditional French style technique, this wine estate creates the finest vintage Methode Cap Classiques
Our next stop on this tour is at the Lanzerac Wine Estate. This wine estate arose in 1962 when Isaac Schrijver was granted a piece of land by the then Governor of The Cape, Simon Van Der Stel, and it has since grown into the most iconic South African wine estate it is today.
After lunch, we head off to the Solms Delta Wine Estate which is different from all the other wine farms in the Franschhoek area. It produces classical, highly acclaimed wines but also offers a variety of diverse highlights throughout the year drawing a wide range of patrons. Magical forest picnics can be experienced all year as well as modern Cape gastronomy at its celebrated Fyndraai restaurant.
