Uniquely Elgin Private Tour Itinerary
The Elgin Valley is one of our favourite places to tour. It is located approximately one hour to the east of Cape Town, over the Sir Lowry’s mountain pass. It is known for its cool-climate wines, particularly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and produces 60% of South Africa’s apple crop.
We will start with an olive and olive oil tasting at Morgenster in Somerset West. Next stop is the popular Peregrine Farm Stall for some coffee and rusks and to browse the many locally-produced farm goods, from honey and chocolates, to preserves and cheeses, to fresh local apples produced in the Valley.
Then we visit one of the many boutique wine farms in the Elgin Valley. Here you will get a feel for the off-the-beaten-track intimacy which Elgin is famous for amongst locals, and taste some of the best wines this region has to offer, from elegant reds, to crisp whites and renowned M.C.C. (sparkling wine).
For lunch, we recommend tapas at South Hill Vineyards, or The Melting Pot at Oak Valley. Lunch is for client’s own account, but we will be happy to assist with bookings.
If the tour occurs on Friday – Sunday, we highly recommend a stop at the Elgin Railway Market, to taste freshly made apple cider and visit with the locals.
