WINE TRIPS FOR EVERYONE! These are 'no frills, no fuss' wine trips’.  A minibus departs from the V&A Waterfront daily at 10h00, and returns by 16h00.

Hop on board THE WINE EXPRESS. A wine trip that gets you to wine country and back.



Itineraries differ on a daily basis but are always structured in the same way:
Visit 3 wineries, spend an hour of free time in the historic towns of Stellenbosch or Franschhoek and be back at Waterfront by 16h00.  All tastings are optional and for your account. Time spent at each winery - just under an hour.
Then join us at Meloncino, where exceptional food, warm Italian ambience and unique views of Table Mountain and the Waterfront’s authentic working harbour are the order of the day.
