Vergelegen wine estate in Somerset West, is offering visitors the opportunity to experience the excitement of a wine harvest first-hand.

For a limited time only, until end of March, the estate is offering a guided wine safari drive through the beautiful vineyards.

Visitors on tour will get to enjoy a 360-degree view from the cellar rooftop garden, overlooking False Bay and the Hottentots Holland Mountain range, the town of Somerset West below, the Atlantic Ocean beyond and, in the distance, Table Mountain.

The tour is available daily depending on the weather, departing at 10am from the wine tasting centre.

Duration of the tour is approximately two hours, and the maximum number of guests allowed on a tour, is eight people. Due to safety regulations, no children under 12 years are allowed.
