WINE TASTING IN BREEDE RIVER VALLEY

Tulbagh, Wolseley and Rawsonville

Wine Tasting in Worcester and the Breede River Valley beyond the Boland Mountains.

A full day of fun and exploring the wine tasting in Worcester and Breede River Valley with unique award-winning wines in the areas that are too far from Cape Town for a Self-Drive option.

08h00: We all meet up and depart from a central location heading out of Cape Town through the Swartland area to our first stop near Tulbagh. Along the way, we will discuss the tasting notes of the great wines that we will taste today. Wine tasting is a uniquely personal experience that is different for each person. It is so interesting to compare notes and share our individual experiences of wine.

Our first wine tasting in Worcester and Breede River Valley is at the 300-year old Twee Jonge Gezellen Wine Estate owned by the Krone family. This wine cellar discovered and played a key role in developing the cold fermentation process in wine production. They also took the lead in starting the process of Night-Harvest when the temperatures are cooler. This tasting focuses on our own MCC or Methode Cap Classique.

For our next stop, we have a choice of cellars. We can travel a short distance down the road to Saronsberg Cellar or on to the Organic Wine and Olive estate of Waverley Hills.

The Saronsberg Wine Estate formed part of the original Twee Jonge Gezellen farm. Under the careful guidance of the passionate winemaker Dewaldt Heyns this cellar has developed into a highly successful enterprise with many award-winning wines being produced here.

Organic Wines

The Organic Wine and Olive Estate of Waverley Hills lies on the slopes of the Skurweberge. In 2018 Waverley Hills Estate won the prize for the Best Organic Wine in the World for their recently released SMV 2013 vintage. Learn about producing wine the responsible way, and doing it very well!

Your wine tasting in the Breede River Valley includes a delicious lunch at the Harvest Table Bistro at the foot of Mitchell’s Pass (or similar). Relax and enjoy this between the morning and afternoon wine tastings.

Women Winemakers of South Africa

We move on down the valley to Breedekloof, located alongside the Breede River. The next Wine Tasting in the Breede River Valley is at the private cellar of Jason’s Hill Estate. The cellar and the winemaking is in the hands of the winner of the first-ever South African Woman Wine Maker of the year 2004.

By this time we will be running a little short on time. We hope to include the last great wine tasting in Worcester and Breede River Valley at the Du Toitskloof Cellar. This is an accredited Fair Trade cellar. Not only is the cellar Fair Trade accredited, but all 22 members of this cooperative cellar are also all Fair Trade accredited.
