Vine hopper - Northern route

Stellenbosch

Activity Description

On the Northern Route you could visit the Bergkelder with its spectacular maturation cellars below Pappegaaiberg, or have a relaxing lunch and tasting at Beyerskloof, famous for its Pinotage. Visit Simonsig with its great wine and views or Warwick, a great place for a picnic or Big 5 Wine safari. Delheim will spoil you with hospitality and good wine. Marianne is the last farm on the route and a great way to end the day with a glass of wine and views to be remembered.

Notes

The Vine Hopper day ticket is the most cost effective way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route. You can decide on what you want to do on the different farms and pay for tastings, tours or activities as you go along.

Please be ready for pick up at your Stellenbosch Central Guesthouse 15 minutes before departure time! You can also meet us at the Tourism Info office at 36 Market Street.

This is a great way to still be independent and not linked to a group but having the comfort of being transported, enabling you to enjoy your tastings at your own time without worries of how you are getting home!

Customer Reviews

This service work really well. The hop on/off service is great and saves on the expense of a driver or the hassle of driving yourself. The vineyards are great, the views are stunning, the tastings are cheap and the food goes well. I have done all 3 routes now and cant wait to do them again soon. - Derek Renshaw


The bus was always on time and we had enough time to visit the vineyards. Beautyful houses and gardens in Stellenbosch and the drivers were really funny! Thanks for that experience! - Julia Kost


It was a fun experience with beautiful wine estates. The picnic at Warwick was certainly a highlight. - Anja Hirsch


We really enjoyed the Wine Hopper Tour. The pick up service from Cape Town was very reliable and punctual. Since we speak little English it was great to speak German with the office. Thanks again. will recommend Wine Hopper Bernd und Angelika - Bernd Schulz
