The Ultimate three-day winelands getaway

Only have three days in the Cape Winelands and feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of squeezing in as much as possible? Don’t stress! We’ve put together a three-day itinerary that covers a few special experiences any wine-lover would love!

Visit the Durbanville Wine Valley​

Wake up at the gorgeous Lanzerac Hotel in Stellenbosch and enjoy their impeccable breakfast spread. From here, it’s time to set out to the Durbanville Wine Valley to explore a few of their most special offerings.

Start off with a wine tasting at Diemersdal, followed by a three-course lunch at the super special Diemersdal Farm Eatery. Here locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with the flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia.

Next up, head to the fabulous De Grendel Wine Estate, where you will embark on a vineyard drive, taking your right up to the highest point on the farm to enjoy a spectacular view of Table Mountain and –Bay in the distance. This will be followed by an extra special tasting of their flagship range of wines and a three-course dinner at De Grendel Restaurant to end off your day.

Head back to Lanzerac Hotel and enjoy a little nightcap at the bar or just hop straight into bed.

Meet the Bosmans & chill out at Lanzerac

Day two of your stay is sure to be a memorable one as you head to Bosman Family Vineyards in Wellington. Upon arrival you will be welcomed with a glass of MCC, followed by a cellar tour, wine tasting and info session on the vine grafting process. The highlight of your visit, however, will be a lunch with owners, Petrus and Carla Bosman at their family home.

Head back to Lanzerac in the late afternoon and enjoy a 60-minute AromaVine™ Pinotage Full Body Massage at Lanzerac Spa. End your day off well with a three-course dinner by candlelight at the Lanzerac Manor Kitchen. What makes this experience extra special is the fact that you will get a glimpse of the creativity that goes into preparing these appetizing meals through the large-scale windows that look in on the kitchen’s operations.
