Today is excellent family-bonding time. It’s the type of day which creates memories kids will refer to for years to come - but also provides parents with the full Winelands experience. Children can run free in lovely gardens and resident barn owls, farm animals and cobweb-filled, spooky cellars add to the excitement of the day.
We have family-friendly wine estates where family is at the heart of things and little explorers are not only warmly welcomed but allowed to treat the farms as a playground. We start with a visit to the most picturesque wine farms with a dramatic mountain backdrop visible from the lush lawns. With oodles of space and activities to keep the little ones happy, it’s no surprise that the estate has become a popular spot, as families and friends come together for a fun morning.
We explore the charming town of Franschhoek with its French Huguenot origins. Choose to explore the picturesque high street, pop into the boutique galleries, shops and cafes while the little ones enjoy a chocolate tasting.
After the morning’s exploration, we move on and stop at an established estate, home to some of the finest wines, recognised internationally for exceptional quality. With its picturesque setting, traditional cuisine and historic charm, this is an enchanting choice and time for mom and dad to enjoy the finer things in life. While parents’ wine-taste, kids have their own iced-tea tasting, so they are never left out.
This afternoon, an old wine estate with ancient cobweb-filled cellars, reveal their secrets to wine pilgrims and young imaginations alike. Taste the flavours and vintages of the region, while kids soak up ghost stories, play in magical surrounds and wander through charmed gardens.
