We have transformed Cape Town wine tours.
Jonathan Snashall’s interest in wine and Cape Town wine tours and tastings was inspired by his father at a very young age, but despite his growing fascination with this ancient libation, he decided to move to the Cape in 1993 to pursue a career in financial services – or so he thought.
After freeing himself from the shackles of an ordinary career in 1997, Jonathan qualified as a professional winemaker in 2001 and began his amazing wine-steeped journey by creating vintages in New Zealand and Europe, after which he returned to Cape Town to represent the world-renowned International Wine Services.
Following two years on the European Master of Wine (MW) programme, he now consults, writes, judges, lectures and (sometimes, when there is enough left-over) bathes in wine. Of course, he is also the guide of Wine Tasting Tours.
Our Cape Town wine tours are comprehensive and infinitely customisable for almost every wine preference, taste or palate. We are also able to offer guests tours that combine a variety of cultural and sporting activities, such as game drives, fly fishing, art gallery visits, balloon flights and museum tours. The travel time to and from destinations varies from 1 to 3 hours of in-vehicle travel, depending on the location of pick up points and visited regions. All of our Cape Town wine tours vehicles are luxuriously finished.
Cape Town is unanimously considered to be one of the most dynamic and creative wine producing countries across the world. Experts flock to our shores to sip on our locally produced Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz, and also to gaze upon the magnificent Cape vistas.
Authentic Cape Town wine tours experiences entail so much more than delicious food and fine wine – they are about indulging all of your senses, including “tasting” the wind. The province’s notoriously gusty South-Easter summer wind enhances the vine’s natural energy as a self-regulating creeper, by reducing the size of both berry and bunch with its cooling Atlantic temperature. The resulting wines are better balanced, pleasantly intense and richer in body and flavour. Let our guide take you on the journey of a lifetime with our unrivalled wine tasting tours.
