Bespoke Wine Tours
You too can experience the fabulous laid-back winelands lifestyle indicative of the Franschhoek Wine valley. Join us for a custom made Bespoke Wine Tour of three beautiful wine farms of your choice in the Franschhoek area.
Tours can be enjoyed either by car or, for the more active, by mountain bike. With over 50 farms to choose from, you will always find what you’re looking for in our valley. Accompanied by an experienced, knowledgeable guide, you will learn a little about the history of the village and about the wines of the region. Gain interesting insight into the valley from a locals perspective.
** Bespoke wine tasting tour at 3 farms for R950.00 per person (car or mountain bike – bike rental included)
While on your custom-made wine tour, why not add a wine & food pairing at one or all of the farms.. There are a large variety of pairings to choose from:
* chocolate, * caramel, * pizza, * biltong, * braai, * Turkish delight or why not try Brandy & Truffles or MCC & Canapés. Each tasting is individually priced. Please refer to booking form for full selection choice.
For something more substantial, book a scrumptious lunch platter at the last farm we visit, either La Bourgogne or Grande Provence, for R300.00 per person.
And for something completely different, join one of the farms that offer a unique food and wine pairing experience. We incorporate any of these experiences in your Bespoke Wine Tour:
* Leopard’s Leap’s Africa Table offers a truly South African culinary experience every Wednesday and Thursday at 12:00pm. Hosted by Chef Pieter de Jager, you will indulge in wonderful traditional meals paired with the best wines. R280.00 per person.
* Leopard’s Leap also hold a Culinaria Food & Wine pairing each Friday at 12:00pm. The Culinaria Food and Wine Pairing shows the wines with food that illustrates the skill of food and wine pairing, offering guests the ideal opportunity to enjoy well-matched combinations while getting to know the fundamentals behind making informed dinner table choices. The pairing is very informative and while providing guests with the knowledge required for future food and wine choices, the experiences is interactive and entertaining. R230.00 per person.
* One of our most beautiful wine farms, La Motte also has a Food & Wine Pairing every Friday at 10:00am. A well-informed Wine Ambassador guides guests through an educational and entertaining food and wine pairing. Regarded for her on-trend interpretation of traditional Cape Winelands Cuisine, Chef Michelle works closely with Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche in creating cuisine to beautifully complement the estate’s wines.
The delicately plated tasters beautifully complement the elegant environment, but still represent flavours and tastes we experience every day and will guide guests towards more reliable future food and wine selections, with reference to weight and intensity, as well as the influence of the primary taste sensations.
Too much wine? For those not 100% into the wine-thing, we are pleased to announce our option of a Craft Beer Brewery Tour and Tasting which can be swopped for one of the wine farms. R120.00 per person.
