WINE TOURS -
Percy Tours conduct many Wine Tours of the region and we specialise in offering designer tours – therefore offering your clients utmost freedom to go to any wineries that they wish to visit, there is no set agenda. We do have our favourites for each region – Hermanus – Hamilton Russell, Bouchard Finlayson, Sumaridge, Newton Johnson, Wine Village – and Creation is also a great place to visit too. We are spoilt for excellence in our wine valley.
Percy Tours are based in Hermanus and we conduct loads of wine tours of our local wine valley which has over 21 wineries, 14 great tasting rooms, over 120 award winning wines for you to sample and 5 fab lunch time restaurants all set in amazing scenery. (Lunch and/or Food and Wine Pairings are for your own pocket).
One Winery up our valley actually won THE red wine of the year in the 2014 John Platter – while another Winery won THE wine of THE year of South Africa against 6500 other wines in 2008, so we are privileged to have these 2 wineries available for you to visit too.
As well as, the John Platter 2015 wine book awarded 7 local Hermanus wines with the highest accolade of them all – 5 stars – this highest score was only awarded to 41 wines out of the 7000 wines produced in SA that year – so we are very happy about this incredible achievement by 3 of our Hermanus producers. Annually, many of our local wineries win high awards for their incredibly excellent wines.
Percy Tours has also been recognised and recommended by John Platter as a local Wine Tour Guide of Hermanus, with listings in the last 8 years editions, including page 657 in the 2019 book and they also have a write-up on their website too –

We also supply cold bottles of water (free of charge), pay for all your wine tasting fees at each winery, box of crackers to cleanse your palates between tastings, John Platter wine book so we can see what the experts have to say about each wine you taste and many more comforts on board…..
We start our tours with a quick drive up onto the high mountains of Hermanus at Rotary Way, as this gives you a fantastic birds-eye view of the wine valley that you are about to explore and we will do a quick explanation of what’s what in this very fertile agricultural valley etc, and then go onto the look-out point that is 350m above Hermanus and allows an incredible view of the town, the beach and the entire ocean of pretty Walker Bay, while we present a jovial and informative explanation of the town, its history, what Hermanus is famous for and some fab little stories / myths about Hermanus, then it’s time to start wine tasting……..
