Winelands Trip on a Totally Different Level
Before U Go -

On Friday I had the pleasure of visiting Neethlingshof Wine Estate on a flight package by Heliwine.   Heliwine is a company that focuses on unique food and wine experiences on the Stellenbosch Wine Route and uses a helicopter to take you there.

It was a picture-perfect day in the Cape. On our way to Neethlingshof we flew over the Winelands and the view was breath-taking.  On arrival we were greeted with a glass of Neethlingshof Sauvignon Blanc.  Then we were taken on a Cellar and Barrel tour, whilst walking through the most beautiful garden and historical buildings.

After this unique experience we were treated to the Premium Flash Pairing especially developed for HeliWine guests, consisting of five bite-sized snacks paired with 5 delicious Neethlingshof wines. In the private cellar they set up our Pairing with soft lighting, flowers and an amazingly knowledgeable guide.  The food and wine were out of this world – an experience you will remember forever.
