1. Stellenbosch Vineyards

10 varieties of wine are produced at this vineyard with a picturesque view of the nearby Helderberg Mountains. Wine tastings at Stellenbosch include a selection of five wines paired with a hand selected charcuterie platter. Be sure to try their Flagship line as well Arniston Bay.

The Flagship wine has notes of florals, plum, blackberry, cassis, spice, and fresh herbs.

The Arniston Bay line is inspired by the sunny skies and beaches named after a fishing village of the same name. With its delicate flavors of guava and kiwi fruit, the Arniston Chardonnay is great for pairing with salads and seafood.
