Wedding anniversaries have become big milestones, albeit one, three or even five years. Some couples prefer to have big parties to celebrate with their extended families whereas others prefer something more intimate.

Planning a surprise anniversary activity for your partner can be time consuming and cost a small fortune, so why not go on private wine tours in and around Stellenbosch? With breathtaking views, mouth watering wines, gourmet picnics and chocolate pairings, it is something every couple should experience.

Start your anniversary by taking a leisurely stroll through the Stellenbosch Botanical garden and enjoy nature’s offering and even an amazing Stellenbosch wine tour you can start from the center of Stellenbosch, it’s the oldest university garden in the Cape and is home to a host of plants, both indigenous to South Africa and exotic.

Taste Handcrafted Red and White Wines

Start your anniversary at Oldenberg Vineyards, tucked away in the Stellenbosch mountains, this wine farm has some of the most breathtaking views. The private setting from the tasting room offers a romantic setting for couples where you can get the opportunity to taste both red and white handcrafted wines.

Take In All The Beauty At Stark-Condé

If you’re looking for an even more intimate setting, the tasting room at Stark-Condé is a must. The tasting room has been built in the middle of a private dam. What’s better than sipping on a glass of wine while enjoying the views of the mountains and vineyards surrounding you?

The final stop of your tour will take you to the Hidden Valley where you can experience wine and chocolate pairing as your tastebuds explode tasting the different wines and textures. As no anniversary is complete without a romantic dinner, head on over to Hidden Valley’s restaurant, Overture for a fine dining experience. This will be the perfect ending to your private wine tour in and around Stellenbosch. Want to know how a wine tour works in other places?
