Our Favourite Places to do Wine Tastings in and around Cape Town

Our selection of must-try sip and swirl sessions for locals and visitors alike

Last Update: 5 September 2017

Living in or visiting the Western Cape means that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to wanting to indulge in a mind-blowing wine tasting session.  With world-class wine regions and top-notch wine farms practically on your doorstep, a mouth-watering sip-and-swirl sitting is often, literally, minutes away.

But in order to help you negotiate and make the most of the Winelands, we’ve rounded up a few of the coolest wine tasting options in and around Cape Town.  From sessions that include a tasty food pairing- think chocolate and cheese- to ones preceded by a Segway tour (more on that later), there’s definitely something for everyone and every budget.

WINE TASTINGS IN AND AROUND CAPE TOWN

La Motte offers a number of specialised tastings; the Current Vintage Tasting (which lets you sample a selection of the La Motte Sauvignon Blanc, Millennium, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and the Syrah, to name a few), the Vinoteque Tasting and their Food and Wine Pairing. Wine connoisseurs will appreciate the Vinoteque Tasting, which combines the estate’s older and current vintages so as to discover the evolution of La Motte’s award-winning wines and to investigate the effects of bottle ageing and maturation. The mouth-watering Food and Wine Pairing matches five bite-sized portions of haute cuisine, created by Chef Michelle Theron, with five of the winery’s highly rated reds and whites that are selected by Cellarmaster, Edmund Terblanche.
Price: Expect to pay between R50/p and R200/p depending on which tasting you opt for.

The Spier Wine Farm 
With award-winning vino and delicious nosh on offer, a wine tasting at Spier is one of the most popular options in the Stellenbosch area. There are three options: The Spier tasting, which lets you sip three of its Signature range wines as well as one vino from each of its 21 Gables and Creative Block premium ranges; the chocolate and wine pairing, which, as the name suggests, sees the farm’s signature Méthode Cap Classique and Creative Block blends complemented by specially curated chocolates; and the Frans K Smit session, which comprises two premium ranges and the farm’s flagship offering, Frans K Smit. Planning a family outing? Well, there is also a kiddies’ grape juice tasting available.  Do note that food platters to accompany the sitting are available to order as well - think cured meats, olives and cheeses. Sounds delicious, right? P.S: check out this Segway tour offering from this forward-thinking farm, the two- hour option includes a complimentary wine tasting.

Delight in their latest offering of L’Ormarins Methodé Cap Classiques (MCC) paired with various flavours of nougat which is guaranteed to get your taste buds tickling.
Three of the estate’s L’Ormarins MCC have each been paired with handmade artisanal nougat.

Usually the beverage is enjoyed as an apéritif served with oysters, caviar and strawberries, but this new pairing takes it to a whole other level! Your taste buds’ world will now be opened to even bigger possibilities as to how one can enjoy this superb wine.
If you do not want to miss out on this marvelous experience in the relaxed atmosphere of the lavish Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room then make sure you get to this renowned estate.

Marianne Wine Estate 
Things are done differently at Marianne Wine Estate. Given the farm’s French connections – it’s owned by Frenchman Christian Dauriac who also makes wine in the Bordeaux region – the winery adds a little à la française to the Cape Winelands. Most of its wines are made to improve with age and are released later than any South African wines, which means you can taste older wines than is generally possible in the Cape. Another thing that stands out at Marianne is how knowledgeable the wine tasting team is. It’s a wonderfully educational experience and, provided you’re not completely distracted by the incredible views from the large, chic tasting room, you’ll come away knowing a great deal more about wine than you did when you arrived. There are several tasting options available including a red wine and biltong pairing and a vertical tasting of at least six Marianne wines. You can also sign up for a highly informative and fun blending tour.
Price: Tastings start at R50p/p. Wine and biltong pairing costs R75p/p. The two-hour blending tour is R300, including a bottle of wine blended by and labelled for you.
Opening times and booking info: Open every day of the year from 10am - 7pm. We suggest you call in advance for larger goups or special occassions.

Avontuur Wine Estate
If you are on the hunt for speciality wine pairings then Avontuur has got you covered. Its monthly combos feature tantalising and scrumptious options like biltong, nougat and chocolate and wine pairings. Tastings take place in Avontuur’s gorgeous, newly renovated tasting room, which claims views of the farm’s paddocks, where some of South Africa’s champion race horses spend their days off the track. 
Price: Tasting will cost you R30 for 5 wines, while specialised tastings will cost you R80. The specilised tasstins can be for a wine and chocolate pairing, a wine and biltong pairing or a wine and confectionary pairing. The pairings change regularly so give them a call to make sure what the new exciting idea is. 
Opening times and booking info: Booking is required.
