Description

Once a year Elizma at R99 Wine Consulting personally hosts a very exclusive wine study trip through the winelands of the beautiful Western Cape on the southern tip of the African continent. The study trip is aimed at international wine students and wine educators who desire an in-depth and intimate introduction to the best South African wines and artisan wineries. It is also a unique opportunity to meet and mingle with some of the Cape's most interesting and passionate winemakers.

With an extensive cultural history, some of the most ancient soils in the world and spectacular scenery, the Cape Winelands is arguably the most beautiful wine region in the world. Experience Cape hospitality at its best while enjoying the culinary delights and world class wines of the region.

The 10-day tour will take you from the historic vineyards in Constantia, through all the diverse districts of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, Elgin, Walker Bay, Robertson, Breedekloof Valley, Tulbagh, Wellington, Swartland and Olifants River to the rugged Cederberg Mountains, along the way meeting with interesting people with in-depth knowledge of the rich and diverse offerings of the Winelands.

Transport through the stunning and diverse landscape is provided in a new air-conditioned 12 seater minibus crews by a professional driver and a tour guide, with space for luggage provided in the trailer.

Taste wines with various winemakers, from SA’s Winemaker of the year, old stalwarts, young upcoming winemakers to the first black female winemaker in South Africa, while visiting a diverse range of wineries from small boutique family owned enterprizes to large international companies.

Visit a unique vine nursery to discover the importance of old vines in SA, and also the Platter Winery of the year, the Chenin Blanc Association, the Pinotage Association and one of the world’s top brandy producers in the world….you do NOT want to miss this lifetime experience!

It would be a hollow victory to discover some of the best wines in the world without the opportunity to match them with food of equal quality. Therefore, a large part of the tour aims to showcase the magnificent traditional country fare and hospitality on offer in each wine region. All hotel accommodation, wine tastings and meals are included in the tour price. Air Fares to and from Cape Town International Airport is excluded.

Due to the fact that the study trip zooms in on artisenal wineries for personal contact with the winemakers, there are only 10 places available on the tour every year. Participants need to have completed WSET level 3 or have completed level 2 and be registered for level 3 or an equivalent qualification in wine studies to enroll for the study trip. Book early to avoid disappointment!
