Cape Winelands Adventures and Things To Do.

Almost 400 years of viticultural history underpins the Cape Winelands. Centuries-old Cape Dutch buildings sit side by side with state-of-the-art wine cellars while heritage vineyards produce award-winning wines that accompany sumptuous food from world-renowned kitchens. Regardless of all this elegance and excellence, the overall sense of the region is unpretentious, well-priced, and down to earth, the way Capetonians like it. What locals also like is to spend time being active outdoors enjoying the long summers days exploring all the green and lovely space around Cape Town especially around the Cape Winelands which is known for its spectacular landscapes. This fuels a growing trend for wine estates to offer a pairing of wine tastings with a range of amazing outdoor activities encouraging people to come out for a day of adventure highlighted by a memorable food and wine experience.

The wineries of Franschoek, Stellenbosch, and Paarl are set amongst sandstone peaks and granite domes that tempt exploration. Brilliantly designed mountain biking trails criss-cross hills above the vineyards and guided hikes through the vineyards and up into the surrounding peaks help to build up your appetite for your farm-to-table lunch. Rub shoulders with fragrant fynbos and learn about how it is being used in cooking and gin making or softly bounce down vineyard-clad slopes on a Scootour while you learn about the different grape varietals.

There are also multiple unusual ways to do your round of estate visits- on a horse-drawn carriage, e-bike, or even on a Harley Davidson. To fully appreciate the remarkable topography of the region, a sunrise hot air balloon flight will provide the perfect overview. A short drive over the barrier of mountains will get you to the Breede River Valley, where you can move peacefully from wine farm to wine farm on a canoe.

The Cape Winelands pairs perfectly with adventure.
