Vine hopper - Southern route

Stellenbosch

Activity Description

The Vine Hopper day ticket is the most cost effective way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route. You can decide on what you want to do on the different farms and pay for tastings, tours or activities as you go along. Some of the highlights of the Southern route include great wines at famous Neethlingshof, enjoying a Brandy Tasting tour at the Van Ryn Brandy Distillery where the cooper shows off his ancient art of barrel making, different pairings available at Spier, or go pet an Eagle at Spier Eagle encounters. Relax with beautiful views at Haskell or a red wine and port tasting at Alto. Kleine Zalze is always a great way to end the day with a delicious wine tasting overlooking the Stellenbosch Mountain

Customer Reviews

Best guide ever! We will definitely come back - Lars Wohlthat


We had a wonderful day doing the Southern Wine Hopper tour. Great service from the staff, friendly and professional. Can highly recommend this experience. - Wandie Badenhorst


The driver was so lovely. He was funny and also very pleasant. He has a lot of knowledge about the farms and informed us on anything we needed to know. - Storm Hurlbatt


We had the best time on the Vine Hopper! Marshall was a fantastic driver - he was so fun and engaging and he shared interesting details with us about each of the vineyards we visited, which made our experience even better. My husband and I did the Northern and Southern route and enjoyed them both. There was plenty of time at each vineyard and we had the flexibility to stay, leave, or skip a vineyard at our leisure. I would highly recommend booking - it was fantastic not worrying about driving. I also liked that I didn't have to do hours of research on which vineyards to go to. - Kelly Potter


This was one of the most memorable experiences I have had to date. Marshall, our bus driver and tour guide was phenomenal. Not only was his service professional, but he always went above and beyond. He would make sure all of us were okay at all times, that we had taken all of our belongings from each destination, kept us safe and he was so friendly and fun. I would highly recommend this service to anyone. I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate my 30th birthday. Thank you Vine hopper team! - Aileen Klette (gifted by Jean Wohlkinger)
