It’s not about Cork Dork combat, unless you really want to make it that, then we’re up for it, but we prefer more hedonistic pursuits. If we don’t chat in advance about your preferred wines or if you’re new to the wines of the Cape, we can quickly work out your preferences at the first tasting and guide you accordingly from there (the guide has international training and frame of reference).
This is where our strength shines and we tailor the tour to suit your tastes and interests, marrying them to our knowledge-base and networks.
Then we can layer that with other themes like the Gourmand, Grande Dames, the garagistes, the bohemian, the high-tech, the biodynamic, the ethical, architectural or those housing international art collections. But there will always be wine at hand, and beautiful vistas.
Or go geekier and take a cellar tour, gaining insight into what really goes on behind those cellar doors. Green fingered people can take an instructive walk into a vineyard on request. If you have ever wondered if your palate could be your superpower you can take a simple supertaster test – swiftly followed by some more wine.
All this is sure to wet your appetite, luckily eight out of Eat Out magazine’s top10 restaurants are either in Cape Town (2) or the Winelands (6) including a couple listed in San Pellegrino’s Top restaurants of the world. Or you can embark on a lavish (or modest) food and wine pairing journey with local or international flavours and wines (these costs for own account) to render all the senses sated.
