Enjoy a delicious lunch made with local produce while you sample some of the area's best wines. You will also have the chance to purchase a beer tasting paddle from the on-site brewery.

Next visit the opulent surrounds of Leogate Estate Wines, where you will join a behind the scenes tour and learn about the wine making process from within their factory. Enjoy a wine tasting while overlooking the estate vineyards and the Brokenback Ranges, a truly impressive sight.
