Description

Enjoy a day of wine tasting in the Helderberg area with the Stellenbosch Wine Bus. Hop on or off at any of the established stops along the route while visititing wineries of your choosing and at your own pace.

Stellenbosch Wine Bus is the preferred hop on, hop off wine tour service departing from Stellenbosch Information Centre and showcasing South Africa’s premier wine region. This tour takes your through the greater Helderberg area.

Our philosophy is simple. We aim to make it easy, fun, safe and affordable to visit South Africa’s premier wine region. Our tours from Stellenbosch offer all the flexibility and enjoyment of driving yourself, without the risks of drinking and driving or the compromise of having a designated driver.

In a nutshell: Our comfortable bus collects from a convenient Stellenbosch CBD location in the morning (Stellenbosch Information Centre – 36 Market Street), then once in the region we follow a recurring timetable circuit that takes 55-65 minutes to complete, in which time we visit 5-6 of the selected wine farms, depending on your route of choice. We follow this same timetable every hour until it’s time to return to the city in the late afternoon (approximately 5 – 5:30pm).

Along the way you are free to hop on or off at any of the established stops, so that in a full day tour you are likely to see up to 4 wineries of your choosing, at your own pace, and independently from the other groups on the bus. This is how you tour your way.

The Helderberg Route is home to some of the oldest wine farms in South Africa. This area stretches from Somerset West to the edge of Stellenbosch and in this area lies the Golden Triangle, a top wine growing area.

The cooling effect of the moisture-laden sea breezes from nearby False Bay combined with excellent soul structures form the ideal growing habitat for noble varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

The moderating effect of the Atlantic Ocean results in cool afternoons and evenings that are ideal for growing quality grapes. This area is home to top quality wineries like Rust & Vrede and Ernie Els wines to name a few.
