We really enjoyed the experience at the 4 wineries, especially at the first Miter's Edge winery, where we were received at the owners' home, with the right to pair cheeses and wines. Delicious lunch with “South African Barbecue” and tasting directly in the cellar. The host gave a show apart, for his knowledge and cordiality. It's so worth it.

It was an amazing day tour! We've been to 4 sites and tasted around 4 wines in each place. I loved learning more about how they started producing wine in South Africa and hearing more about the types of wine. They had vegetarian options on the lunch menu. I recommend you have breakfast before the tour since you will start drinking around 10 am.

Amazing experience, very well organized, tried different wineries and they were all so nice. Great value for money to be able to visit multiple wineries.

The experience is as described and more, it is one of a kind. Loved the fact that different pairing experiences were part of the package

Best wine tour we've ever done and we've done a lot of them
