About Vine Hopper
The Vine Hopper is the only way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route and surroundings by hopping onto our bus at any time and hopping off anywhere along our carefully selected routes. Stellenbosch is one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa and is home to some of the best wine estates in the world! These wine farms range from big, high tech cellars, through multi-functional farms and historical manors to small, more intimate wine estates that lend themselves to relax and enjoy nature as well as the fruits of the vine!With the Vine Hopper, it is our intention to offer you a good representation of the Stellenbosch Wine Route which should suit your every need, whilst leaving it up to you to decide where you want to go and how long you would like to stay!
