Wine Tasting in Stellenbosch

 Wine Tasting in Stellenbosch

I love wine. Pinotage, Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot. You’re an instant friend if you bring a bottle over to the house. So naturally when I travel, I seek out delicious wines. And if you’re in Cape Town, wine country is just a short drive away.

There’s plenty of wine estates and vineyards in the cape, and most offer free tours and sampling. But for a decent afternoon of tasting, check out the Spier Wine Estate in the Stellenbosch region. It’s easy to make your trip to Spier a full half-day. There’s a Cheetah Sanctuary, full-service restaurant and more.

But of course, you’re here to drink…er…taste wine. So here’s a lesson in tasting vino for those of you who would like to sophisticate your palette.

I’ll see you out there…! After I finish this bottle of Pinotage.



Loved this! Especially the part where you “SMEEELLL” the wine. : D Nice clip!


Thanks Peach! Most people forget to smell the wine, and really stick their nose in the glass – but that’s how you tell the real wine snobs from the average drinker!
