Enjoy the beautiful countryside along with some delighful wines!

South Africa has the perfect climate for producing wines – their wines are world famous and one of the great things about visiting South Africa is tying in a tour of the vineyards amongst all the other activities this wonderful country has to offer. Perhaps the most famous wines are those from the Stellenbosch region where the vineyards are set amongst a stunning backdrop of breathtaking scenery. TravelBella enjoyed the wine tasting at the charming Neethlingshof Wine Estate, delicious wines complete with picturesque views of the rolling Bottelary Hills and Papegaaisberg Mountains. The wine tasting centre had excellent staff on hand to talk you through the wines, as well as generously offering tastings – perhaps a little too generous as TravelBella ended up with a rather large collection of wine to take back home! The manor house is also a worthy part of the visit and it dates back to the early 18th Century and is immersed in a colouful historical past, the approach to the house is also impressive with a dramatic avenue of stone pines that will make your trip to this vineyard even more memorable. There are so many vineyards to choose from when visiting Stellenbosche that one with a story and unique features makes it stand out a little more, not to mention the outstanding wine that is produced here!
