Wine Appreciation Tour


Activity Description

Hop on board for an entertaining and educational day tour that will enrich your understanding and appreciation for the unique art of wine making, to discover the story inside the bottle.
This guided tour showcase some of the most unique and must-do activities at 5 wine estates in the Robertson Wine Valley.

​Start the day with an exclusive terroir and cellar tour by an exceptionally passionate winemaker that will give you a good understanding of the wine-making process.

We move on to a boutique wine estate where you will experience an interactive tasting in a unique underground candlelit ‘kuip’ that include; a vertical wine tasting of single vineyard limited release wines, comparing normal wine glasses to grape specific crystal glasses (RIEDEL), pairing wine with fruit preserves, chocolate, art and music.

Followed by a picnic-style lunch on a relaxing boat cruise down the Breede River.

Discover the inner-winemaker in you, by blending, bottling and labeling your very own wine creation to take home, as memorabilia of the wonderful day you have had.
We end the day at South Africa’s biggest family owned winery, for a great variety of wine and food pairings platters to select from.

Customer Reviews

Had a wonderful experience! Great value for money. Saves you the trouble of driving and allows you to enjoy the wine.Thanks to Mariaan for her friendly and excellent service/arrangements and to Gert -a great tour guide. Will definitely return. - Winnie Burger

Having had no idea what Robertson area was about, we decided for this guided tour to explore the area. Instead of the beeeg wineries we were taken to some boutique places, real gems in many different ways. Our tour guide managed our group perfectly, from pickup thru drop-off at the door steo of our accommodations. we spent the whole day with MCC news (and tasting!!), great wines and interesting pairing experience. The boat trip was a bit very "wet", but not even this cold reain could break the group's good mood. So, we had a great day out and we were happy to have decided for the all in package - it was all worth it - Erwin & Sabine Zlabinger

The Wine Appreciation Tour was fantastic. It is great value for money, loads of fun. The farms visited were great, and we bought some great wines. The staff are all amazing and clearly place loads of importance on excellent customer satisfaction. If you get an opportunity to do this, DO IT!!! Fabulous trip. - Monique Richter

Fantastic day with our tour guide Ande who was very patient with us and gave great advice. Four wine tastings that were completely different from pairing, picnic lunch on a river boat cruise to blending and bottling your own wine to take away at Excelsior. Serious wine tasting or a bundle of laughs in a relaxed atmosphere. The choice is entirely up to you. Unbelievable value for money. My tip is to take the fully inclusive package which savea a bit of hassle. Thanks Ande for a memorable day. - Ian Jackson

We enjoyed an excellent day tour of the Robertson Valley wineries with our guide Ande. All very well planned and great that we could taste so many lovely wines and not have to worry about driving as this is a door to door service. Highly recommended - Mary
