With the fabulous ,For the love of food' tour, our partner Wine Desk created a new wine tour for connoisseurs. It offers the opportunity to experience as much of the cape‘s fabulous wine country food culture in one day. The pampering begins promptly at 8:00 with the experienced wine guide and driver Heith, who rounds off the impressions with his personal footnotes.
The aim of the tour is the region around Stellenbosch -the university town is the second oldest european-founded settlement in South Africa- and Franschhoek, home to the French Hugenots since 1688. Besides the cultural and natural diversity, the region is also known for its fantastic wines and culinary creativity. After several walks in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek as well as the wine estate of Babylonstoren, three different ,Wine and Food Tastings‘ are to be experienced at the wineries Rupert & Rothschild, Babylonstoren and Lanzerac, all of our senses were more than satisfied. At the end of a day filled with unforgettable impressions Heith drove us back safely to Pure Guest House.
The ,For the love of food‘ tour holds on to what it promises. Our conclusion: thumbs up!
