Dine: The wine tasting itself is unparalleled, with signature varietals like Pinotage and Chenin Blanc, as well as a variety of other quality wines to enjoy, all at South Africa's notoriously affordable prices. You can find them all on the wine list at Ernie Els’ classy restaurant, the Big Easy, which is nestled among the quirky architecture on South Africa’s second oldest road, the oak tree-lined Dorp Street, once the ‘wagon road to the Cape.’

Dine: Visit the wine and sushi bar set at Beau Constantia high up on the slopes of Table Mountain. The modern glass structure known by the locals as “the fish bowl” is not to be missed. The tasting room is adjacent to the fish bowl and the sea views from there might distract you from the wines.

Dine: Each winery in Hemel-en-Aarde produces small amounts of highly individual, terroir-driven wines. Situated on a 20km-long meandering route rich with vineyards, wine estates, restaurants, is Pinot noir and Chardonnay specialists Hamilton Russell Vineyards, a fantastic estate set behind the old fishing village of Hermanus.
