The Western Cape of South Africa, commonly called just Cape Town, is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. From the Cape of Good Hope with its penguins to the hiking trails of Arrangies Kop and Die Vrolijkheid you won't run out of activities to do and sights to see.
For wine lovers however, the main attraction to Cape Town is South Africa's amazing wines. Though the wines from traditional wine producing areas of South Africa are often relegated to the lower shelves of European supermarkets, bottles from some of the up-and-coming areas such as Overberg, Swartland, and Robertson are being sold in top restaurants and wine boutiques across Europe and North America. You can find out what the international buzz is all about on a tasting tour in Cape Town by car hire.
A good place to begin is in Paarl. Located about 60 km from Cape Town, the easiest way to get there is by Cape Town rental car. There are several wine estates to visit here such as Laborie Estate, Nederburg, Rhebokskloof, Ruitersvlei, and Simonsvlei. Some offer specialty tours, such as the 'vine to wine' tour at Mooi Bly, or cheese and wine tasting Under the Tree at Boland Keder.
For the most beautiful view over all the vineyards of Paarl you can take a hot-air balloon ride over the Berg River Valley. The area is also home to other interesting attractions such as the Afrikaans Language Museum, Paarl Golf Club, and Red Hot Glass Studio on Seidelberg Wine Estate.
