The Vine Hopper is the only way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route and surroundings by hopping onto our bus at any time and hopping off anywhere along our carefully selected routes. Stellenbosch is one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa and is home to some of the best wine estates in the world! These wine farms range from big, high tech cellars, through multi-functional farms and historical manors to small, more intimate wine estates that lend themselves to relax and enjoy nature as well as the fruits of the vine!With the Vine Hopper, it is our intention to offer you a good representation of the Stellenbosch Wine Route which should suit your every need, whilst leaving it up to you to decide where you want to go and how long you would like to stay!

Had an excellent day wine tasting (drinking) with a great driver Marshall who shepherded us round the 5 wineries on the Eastern Tour. We had a great day out. Marshall changed the running order so we could have lunch at Boschendal.

We went on the Eastern tour and had time for only five stops. Lunch at Camberley was a little disappointing but overall it was a good way to spend a day.

Dear Emily. October is still ok and there should be space but it is always best to book a day or 2 in advance to make sure you have space.

Even though most farms have red and white, I would recommend the Eastern Route or Northern Route for white wines. Regards Raino
