As one of the leading Franschhoek wine farms in the Cape Winelands, Solms-Delta’s special interest guided tours exceed the conventional wine tasting experience.
Our unique guided wine farm tours expose visitors to more than just award-winning wines. Led primarily by farm residents, the tours offer rare personal insight into the vineyards, farm workers’ lives, and the cultural and musical heritage of Solms-Delta and the surrounding Cape Winelands.
Our vineyards are beautiful and our wines speak for themselves. But the real value of this place is the people who shaped it. The true stories behind the wines are best told by the people themselves, many of whom are from families that have lived in the Cape Winelands, and on Franschhoek wine farms, for generations.
