I can add to the Stellenbosch list

Delaire Graff Estate
Peter Falke (Great for late afternoon / sunset - open till 7)
Waterford
Stellenrust (nice biltong and wine pairing)

Hermanus is also nice if you have a couple of days, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley has a few gems.

one of my favourites in Stellenbosch is Warwick - they do great picnics by the little dam, but you must book in advance.

In Stellenbosch there is also wine Tuk Tuks thats drive you around from estate to estate. Not sure what they called but when you there you'll see them buzzing around.
Unless someone on here can tell you.

Spier is also a great one to visit in Stellies. You could probably spend an entire day there seeing all they have to offer. The wine isnt really that amazing but not horrible, but the estate is spectacular.

In Somerset Lourensford is brilliant when the food market is open. Different days depending on season. In winter its friday night.

Hehe. Ouch I didn't give any love to Wellington, Paarl or Franschhoek.

Paarl
Nederburg - good wine, beautiful farm

Wellington
Doolhof - most beautiful estate IMO

Franschhoek
Mostly too touristy for me. But if you like cars then the Franschhoek car museum is great together with Anthonij Rupert Estate.

Just listing estates that have left an impression on me or have a personality.

Paarl
Go to Spice Route. Some good wine but also CBC brewery is there. Also Biltong tasting, coffee and chocolate tastings.
Fairview is right next door, great cheese - wine is ok.

Wellington
Diemersfontein
KWV - Brandy

Franschhoek
If you not doing the Tram:
Babylonstoren - Also has a lot to offer other than wine
Chamonix - Excellent wine (also happens I got Married there)
Dieu Donne - Also has great brewery
Haute Cabriere - Bubbles

If you venture inland

Robertson
Springfield
Graham Beck
Bon Courage

Sorry have done a lot of wine touring in the Cape with my wife. Actually heading out there next week to check out Constania to Hermannus wine area.

Yes was going to mention Spice Route :thumbsup:

Been living in Cape Town for a few decades so have been to almost every estate. Drinking wine is a hobby :p
While doing Hemel-en-Aarde you have to do Creation and Sumaridge!

Just listed my favourites for various reasons e.g. historic buildings, stunning views, massive 400 year old trees (Vergelegen), and of course excellent wine ect

If you like bubbly, try Idiom in Somerset West for their selection of Proseccos.
