At Road Travel we are forever finding new and exciting products for our clients. This is one day trip we suggest to all Wine Lovers. From the small private airstrip just outside Stellenbosch, you will take off in a comfortable plane, Cessna 208 Grand Caravan, and you will start your first flight around the stunning Cape Peninsula, which stretches over 70km from North to South.
You will discover many vineyards in the Constantia and Stellenbosch regions, all of them within superb valleys. During the flight, you will taste some of the top 12 wines made in South Africa, selected and explained by our French sommelier. He will also give you historical and geological information for better understanding of the influence of the soils and the position of the vines, and consequently, on the difference between wines. A rare knowledge to better understand the world of wine.
The flight will continue along the Wine Route, which stretches toward the East of the Western Cape region, which you will see from an unusual angle. The Paarl Mountains, the Franschhoek Valley and the lovely village of Robertson will reveal their hidden secrets and it will probably be far from what you have ever expected. We will land one hour later on a private airstrip in a magnificent Nature Reserve, a kind of hidden paradise of the Western Cape; We will do our second wine tasting during a delicious “food & wine pairing”.
The third and last wine tasting will take place during the afternoon flight, and you will taste the Best “Cap Classique” and Dessert Wines, with some entremets. The return flight will take you over the Wine Route again, but specifically over its southern part, where you will be able to see different vineyards in the Elgin and Hermanus regions. A soft landing at Stellenbosch in the late afternoon will complete an exceptional and rewarding day that you will remember for ever. Contact us at Road Travel to book your Flying Wine Tour.
