Our half day Horse back wine tour takes us across 3 of South-Africa's most famous wine estates. We ride from our Nursery farm, onto Joostenberg, which is an organic farm. We ride our horses through the vineyards, and across farmland surrounded by tranquility and spectacular views.
From there we cross to De Meye, one of South-Africa's oldest wine farms, with a historic old manor house and tasting room. From there we ride to Muldersvlei, and over Klapmuts Kop.
We have lunch at a lookout with spectacular 360 degree views of Table mountain, False Bay, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschoek mountains.
After lunch we ride to Arra Wine estate, where guests are invited to join our hosts and tasting some of the estate's wine.
After lunch we ride back to the Pink Geranium nursery, stopping at De Meye for another tasting and some refreshments.
We ride on some of South-Africa's most well known wine estates.
We set off from our Nursery farm, and ride onto Joostenberg organic farm. We are literally surrounded by vineyards, views and tranquility. We often see little Duikers (small antelope) and a huge variety of birds.
We ride through vineyards, forest areas and indigenous fynbos.
Apon leaving Joostenberg, we cross to de Meye, which is a very old estate with a historical manor house. We meander our way up the hill at Klapmuts Kop, where we stop for lunch. We enjoy our lunch overlooking table mountain, false bay, and the most spectacular scenery imaginable.
Lunch consists of a gourmet picnic stuffed full of local delights, such as bread, cheese, olives, salad, ham, and sweet treats.
After a rest we set off down the hill to Arra estate, where guests can partake in a wine tasting of the wonderful wines produced on Arra winery. Guests can also order wine to be delivered directly to your door at home.
After the wine tasting, we head back home, stopping at de Meye on the way back for a break and some refreshments.
All refreshments, lunch, and winetastings are included in this package.
This ride does require good riding skills, and is not suitable to novices. Although our horses are very well trained, they do enjoy this ride very much, and get a little excited! Guests should be able to comfortably trot and canter. We spend around 4 hours in the saddle, so a good level of fitness is important. Novice riders are advised to book our 1 hour or 2 hour vineyard rides, which can be taylored to beginners.
We do not mix groups, so you will get exactly the ride you want, be that a gentle meander or a fast paced canter.
Your guide is a local, and very knowledgable & passionate about South African culture, natural horsemanship and South-African wine.
We finish back at the cafe/ Coffeeshop, where you are welcome to enjoy a cold drink on the 'stoep' overlooking our beautiful African garden.
