A new trend in the Cape winelands is to offer platters with the winetasting. My favourite thing to do is to order a platter for lunch, and ask to have my winetasting with it. Imagine enjoying a platter of local meat, cheese and chutneys with homebaked bread, while looking out over the vineyards and tasting 4-6 wines during the course of the lunch! At around ZAR 90-120 for two people, these platters are great value. The winetasting is often charged at about ZAR 25-30 per person, but the great thing is that if you buy any wine to take home the charge is waived. Talk about having your lunch and keeping the wine!
Many maps now include information about whether the vineyards serve platters. Here are my personal favourites:
