From Mossel Bay we take a drive on the N2 through Mossel Bay and Hessequa areas, running parallel with the picturesque Langeberg Mountain range. Our first stop is Baleia Wines and Olive Oil where guests can taste 4 of their wines. All wines are produced and bottled at their tasting hall and cellar in Riversdale. You will also be receiving your own Baleia Glass as souvenir for the day.
From there we travel through the historic town of Riversdale to De Doornkraal Boutique Hotel where guest can enjoy a delicious meal passionately prepared by Chef Christopher Peppas. Wines served is from the estate's own cellar across the road, Aan't Vette. Aan't Vette's award winning wines are all single origin from the farm itself where it is lovingly pressed, produced, bottled and enjoyed.
Next guests will travel back towards Mossel Bay and the last stop on the tour will be ReedValley. Here guests can sample no less than 8 wines and, if they wish, sample some of their gin-on-tap or authentic Portuguese cuisine. (Wine tasting at ReedValley is included in tour price. Gin and food and treats are for guest's own account.) From here we head back to Mossel Bay and bid our guests a fond farewell and hope to see them return for the next tour.
