Vine hopper - Southern route

Stellenbosch

Activity Description

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. Some of the highlights of the Southern route include great wines at famous Neethlingshof, enjoying a Brandy Tasting tour at the Van Ryn Brandy Distillery where the cooper shows off his ancient art of barrel making, different pairings available at Spier, or go pet an Eagle at Spier Eagle encounters. Relax with beautiful views at Haskell or a red wine and port tasting at Alto. Kleine Zalze is always a great way to end the day with a delicious wine tasting overlooking the Stellenbosch Mountain

The tour was terrific and our driver was enjoyable and worked tirelessly to find vineyards that were open for tastings as the scheduled ones were closing. I would recommend to my friends! - Sherry Chong


As I wrote in Trip Adviser, We had the most wonderful time and Marshall was amazing. His inventiveness in a difficult time with vineyards closing was great. The time slots worked well. Marshall made sure that we knew where we were going and what time the next pick up would be. We will certainly be recommending you. - Michael Shepherd
