“It’s not just a wine tour, it is about creating different experiences that guests will remember.” – Taryn

Hi, I am Taryn!

I take a very personal interest in creating the best possible wine tour experience for my guests. I focus on the smaller, boutique wineries for a more personal, intimate wine tasting experience.

It’s not just a wine tour, it is about creating different experiences that guests will remember.

When choosing which wineries to take my guests to, I like to know what type of wine you like to drink and how much you know about wine, so that I can put together a bespoke tour, catered specifically to your needs. I always have 3 things in mind when choosing only the best wineries to visit. it’s called my SSW SCENERY- I like to choose farms which have an extra wow factor attached to them. It may be an amazing view, a personal touch or even having your tasting done by a winemaker. Excellent SERVICE and WINE is non-negotiable.

Excellent SERVICE and WINE is non-negotiable

I take you to wineries that have excellent quality wines and excellent service because if you have bad service, it can ruin your whole experience.

I am a local and live in the heart of the Cape Winelands. I have over 20 years’ experience in the tourism/hospitality industry. I am the winner of the best private tour company in the Western Cape and the winner of the best private tour company in South Africa!

My tours are fun, informative, and bespoke to your needs. My passion is people and wine. I care about the experience you have, and I will go out of my way to make sure you have the best experience possible.

I have visited over 325 wineries and counting. It is my goal to taste the wines from all the wineries in South Africa. This helps me to decide which wine farms to take you to.

Join me on a tour as I share my passion of wine and take you to amazing places

What Our Clients have to say

“Within a short conversation upon meeting, Taryn put together a plan for a full day of wine tasting – not only did the wine farms she selected have fantastic wine (I bought at least one bottle from every place we visited!), they were beautiful as well! The entire day was great, and Taryn is quick witted and a lot of fun. Now, every time I return to South Africa, I make sure to spend a day or two with Taryn! I highly recommend her tours, not just for the great places she chooses, but for her great personality as well!”

Craig B, Las Vegas, USA

“If there were 7 stars available, Taryn certainly deserves them!! What an experience!!!! Such a wonderful humble knowledgeable beautiful soul who could save the world with her smile and passion. Besides being an amazing human being, she’s a darn good guide- she makes bespoke tours based on her clients’ preferences and is able to course correct in a moment notice. One of the best experiences I have had in a while, I highly recommend Taryn!”

Katayune E

“We visited the Stellenbosch region for a few days and the highlight of the visit was 2 excellent days with Taryn. I have previously taken wine tours both in SA and further afield in California and France and I think its safe to say that the 2-day tour offered by Tary stands out as one of the best I’ve ever experienced anywhere.”

Gael-abroad, Dublin, Ireland

“Excellent service. Thank you, Taryn, for all your assistance from booking accommodation, transport to a special picnic. You’ve even helped arrange a special package to be delivered from Durban. You’ve managed all this between tours. You nailed it with arrangements from a few destinations and made it all come together on our tour. (Durban, Pretoria, Johannesburg, Kimberley and Cape Town) THANK YOU for putting your personal touch with this tour, It was perfect.”


“Great family day out and Taryn was so knowledgeable ensuring not only ourselves, but our 2 children aged 14 and 16 also had a great day. Would highly recommend this tour if you’re in Cape Town.”
