It is also possible to forego optional activities in order to take in more wineries & this is totally at the clients’ discretion. Percy Tours strives to cater to individual wishes & maintain utmost flexibility. Where possible, Percy Tours has chosen wineries that offer specific tours that detail the way in which wine is made at each vineyard, thereby ensuring continuity & guests come away with an in-depth knowledge of South African wines & wine making.
Percy Tours has completed wine courses with the Cape Wine Academy and therefore our Tour Guides will discuss all sorts of topics regarding wine, its history, vine and grape growing procedures, cellars, bottling, corks, barrels, exports and much more…….while you slowly sip your wines.
