Try the brandy and chocolate pairing, dive into a round of wine tasting, or just discover how the fine Cape wine is made. Defintely worth a visit when in Paarl. And after the wine tasting, have dinner at Cascade Manor and enjoy the food that...More

We took a group of overseas friends for this informative tour of the facilities. The presentation was very professional and the fact that it could also be given in German to accommodate our visitors was an additional benefit. Rich history; well done !!
