These guests were extremely keen to explore the Cape Winelands and its world-class food and wine scene, so Luxury Travel Manager Kim arranged a specialist tour guide to show them around. They visited the best vineyards, had a number of excellent wine tastings and cellar tours and enjoyed lunch at one of the finest restaurants in the Cape. Here’s what guide Pamela had to say:
“A huge thank you for sending me this fabulous couple. I loved my time with them! Eran is into red wines – LOVES Cabs. Not fond of Shiraz. They both enjoy cab franc. Megan is more into whites and leans towards Chardonnay. They have a share in a vineyard in Napa and are wine fanatics.
We started our wine tour at Waterkloof with a wonderful cellar tour done by a lady called Lee. Lee looked after us for the wine tasting and we learned so much about her life growing up in Hopefield. She was fascinating and really bright and we all really enjoyed meeting her. We pretty much spent most of the morning there. I did a short driving tour of Stellenbosch and skidded them into Delaire Graff with instructions to have the estate wine with lunch. Eran LOVED the Cab 2015. We then headed across the road to Tokara to sample their wines. A quick drive through Franschhoek town and then we stopped into Mullineaux & Leeu Family Wines for the last tasting slot of the day.
Fabulous people – I hope they come back!”
