Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town

Cape Town Winelands

Get a taste of the good life on a tour of Cape Town’s internationally acclaimed winelands. Mount Nelson Hotel offers half- and full-day tours to the major wine trails, as well as specific red, white and Cap Classique tours.

Stellenbosch
A 45 minute drive from the Mount Nelson, the Stellenbosch Wine Route is arguably the country’s most famous. 

Muratie Wine Estate, which has been producing wine since 1685, and Delaire Graff Estate, located on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass, are highlights of any tour to the region.

Mount Nelson Hotel offers half- or full-day tours to Stellenbosch. For more information or to book, contact our concierge »

Franschhoek
Franschhoek Wine Valley lies deep in the Cape Winelands, about an hour away from the hotel, and is South Africa’s very own "French Corner". Here, amidst luscious vineyards and gracious Cape Dutch farmsteads, you’ll find a picturesque village proud of its 17th century Huguenot history.

With a rich social history spanning over 300 years, Solms Delta is a recommended stop on any tour to the region. While Chamonix, producing one of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blends, offers beautiful vistas over the Franschhoek Valley. 

Mount Nelson Hotel offers half- or full-day tours to Franschhoek. For more information or to book, contact our concierge »

Paarl
The picturesque town of Paarl is cradled between the magnificent 50-million-year-old granite boulders of Paarl Mountain and the towering Du Toitskloof Mountain range. 

Located about 45 minutes from Mount Nelson Hotel, Backsberg Estate Cellars and award-winning Laborie offer some of the best wines in the bucolic bliss of Paarl.

Constantia Valley
Beautiful Constantia Valley is located just a 20 minute drive from the Mount Nelson and is home to the oldest wineries in the Cape.

Enjoy a scenic drive to Cape Point Vineyards (Noordhoek) where the unusual maritime climate, created by the meeting of cold Atlantic and warm False Bay currents, is ideal for superior winemaking. Tucked away in on the slopes of Constantia Mountain is Eagles’ Nest a small boutique winery producing award-winning Nest Shiraz, Merlot and Viognier. 

Mount Nelson Hotel offers half- or full-day tours to Constantia Valley. For more information or to book, contact our concierge »
