4. Alto Wine estate: Wine tasting
The history of Alto dates back to 1693. In the 1920’s the Malan family transformed the untamed land into vineyards. The estate’s reputation for producing world-class red wines can be ascribed, in part, to its excellent terroir.
Located in the Stellenbosch Winelands, the area is known as the Golden Triangle. In summer, when the vines are drenched in sunshine, the late-afternoon sea breezes cool the grapes, lengthening the ripening period and preserving the complex flavours of Alto’s noble varietals.
Included: Wine tasting of 3 Alto wines, optional discount vouchers.
