Activity Overview
Explore sustainability with our enlightening Green Tour
The Cape is a Mecca for anyone who has a taste for environmentally sustainable and ethically produced wine and boasts some of the world’s leading organic and biodynamic producers like Reyneke and Waterkloof.

The Cape is a world pioneer in IPW – Integrated Production of Wine – a compulsory standard aimed at reducing reliance on herbicides and pesticides, keeping wine production as natural as possible. Our Green Tour will allow guests to explore and discover some of the most sustainable wine farms in South Africa.

This has been supplemented by the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI) which has received recognition for the South African wine industry as leaders of global wine in demonstrating the balance between nature and farming by driving conservation-minded farming practices.

Meanwhile, South Africa is the largest producer of Fairtrade wine globally, with 24 producer organizations, and accounts for around two- thirds of Fairtrade wine sales.

This tour focuses on environmentally friendly activities, conservation, and sustainable farming practices. It is for those who have a preference for the natural, the twitches, the flora & fauna fanatics, organic and biodynamic enthusiasts, or those want to experience something different, energizing and inspiring.

The Cape boasts a growing number of organic and biodynamic wineries who have shown that quality and alternative farming practices are not mutually exclusive and can improve quality and complexity.

Highlights:
  • Winemaker-led, focussing on organic and biodynamic producers and their differences.
  • Access to a trade network built over the last 30 years.
  • International perspective of the Cape and the International wine trade.
  • Experience and insight of International winemaking, writing, lecturing, and judging – with wit and wisdom.

Very highly recommended
We had an absolutely amazing day. We told Jonathan we were interested in natural and organic wine and put together a fantastic bespoke tour. He is extremely knowledgeable, great fun and extremely accommodating (we even swung by the airport at the end so my friend could make her flight back to the UK). He responded to our request for vegan options at lunch with a range of options - all of which looked ... more wonderful. The whole experience exceeded expectation.

Don't have the whole day to spend tasting wine in Stellenbosch, Paarl & Franschhoek, this is the tour for you! Pick up at preferred location or hotel and drive through the Durbanville ... moreHills Wine Valley,
nestled in the Tygerberg Hills, a mere 20 minutes drive from Cape Town. With its hectares of flourishing vineyards, award winning wines and hospitable atmosphere, this wine valley is fast becoming the Cape’s destination of choice.
Situated on the cool slopes of the Dorstberg, with Table Mountain as backdrop, Diemersdal Wine Estate provides the perfect setting for the production of unique, soulful wines where you will experience your wine tasting followed by a lunch with flavours of the countryside and the relaxing farm ambiance in an old stable, restored with care by the Louw family, where they’ve been making wine for six generations.
Here locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with the flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia. The herbs and some of the vegetables are from the kitchen garden, the preserves and pickles home-made and the bread freshly baked.
Drive back to preferred location for drop-off.

This tour can either start at 9am until 2pm (after lunch) or alternatively from 12pm to 5pm.
