Enjoy an invigorating hike through the scenic Cape Points Vineyards wine farm, with four wine tasting stops along the way this Sunday, March 27. It’s the perfect way to wrap up your weekend celebrating your passion for wine and the outdoors with some of Cape Town’s best wine and views. So put on your comfiest hiking boots and join Cape Point Vineyards for a wholesome day of sensory engagement.
Cape Point Vineyards is a family-owned, women-run vineyard that is ideally located in Noordhoek on the Cape Peninsula, where it sits majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range and overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean – just 2 km one way. Cool sea breezes and ancient mountain soils make this a unique terroir with a late growing season that results in a world-class Sauvignon Blanc with mineral tones and great complexity.
The 4.5 kilometer hike begins at the luxurious Cape Point Vineyards restaurant, passing through the olive grove before entering the vineyards, which are unique for their proximity to the ocean.
Four tasting stations will be installed along the route, each highlighting the particular qualities of the block of vines in which it is located. Guests will be able to sample a variety of flavors and learn about the conditions that created them while enjoying breathtaking views along the way. Tickets cost R150 and include a bottle of wine from the vineyard.
The route is child friendly but has a 120 meter gradient so pushchairs are not recommended. Those under 18 can join for free, although wine and tasting are not included.
