Boschendal is the second-oldest winery in South Africa, dating back to 1685. While sampling wines in the estate's hydrangea-laden park or touring the expansive grounds, there is no mistaking that the vineyard has had more than 400 years to perfect the wine tasting experience. Boschendal is best known for its Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc, but be sure to try the vineyard's one-of-a-kind Blanc de Noir, a Rosé-like white wine made from red grapes. Cellar and vineyard tours are available if booked in advance (cellar tour Jan-Dec 10:30am & 3pm, vineyard tour only available on advance booking). The classic Cape Dutch complex has two restaurants and can also pack a picnic for you to enjoy beneath one of their massive oaks. A museum built inside an original 1812 manor house displays the highlights of Cape Dutch daily life (R15, 9:30am-5pm).
