Winelands, South Africa - Need a Plan

Jump to last reply

After 4 nights in Cape Town, we plan to head to the Winelands for a couple of nights, giving us one full day in the area. While I am a wine drinker and my wife will go along to be a good sport, we will probably want to confine our tastings to later in the afternoon, both on the day we arrive and on the full day. Otherwise, we would be happy with a 2 hour hike, shopping and just driving around and taking in the scenery and any major sites. What I am looking for is suggestions on where to base ourselves - there are a lot of options. I have no wineries in particular that I want to visit and the lodging options seem to be diverse and plentiful. We tend to favor places to stay that are smaller and at the upper end, which seems to be obtainable for 2000 to 2500 ZAR. We are going next February and it would be nice to be in an area where there would be a good hike, some sites, some shopping for my wife, several good wineries for tastings and good places for dinner that don't require a long drive or any at all. Any thoughts?
