The content of our tours is the distillation of 30 years of close observation of the Cape wine scene, first as a fanatical consumer, then as a winemaker, wine writer and judge, making our wine tasting tours unrivalled in quality and insight. Guests also gain access to the network of friends, colleagues and associates established over that time.

Whether you’re a curious beginner or serious wine anorak, we can do wine tasting 101 or chat for example about why and how reds must go through malolactic fermentation (MLF) and of course taste some fab wines along the way.

If you don’t yet have a sense of what you would like to do, we can offer a selection of wineries to visit or we can specialise in varieties, regions, or styles including, for example, Methode Cap Classique (Methode Champagnois) or Chenin Blanc where we are making some of the best examples in the world, as we are brandy.
