About Tuning the Vine

Tuning the Vine is an 'inner city wine route' and a way to 'rediscover the streets of Cape Town'.

It's a mid-week wine tasting adventure, held once a month, in the heart of the city. No more having to drive out to remote wine farms to sample the vine. Now you can do it right here, in the heart of the Mother City.


On the second Wednesday of every month the #innercitywineroute starts at 5.30pm and gives you three hours of tastings at various venues (usually restaurants, bars and pubs) in the city bowl.

How it works

Wine lovers or interested novices simply head to one of various ticket stations (consult their website), get a ticket, which comes with a wine tuning kit (glass, wristband and map) and then you walk from venue to venue, in your own time, and in any variation that grabs your fancy, to taste between 25 and 40 wines on offer.

The Venues

The venues offer 'food on the go' options, so you're not expected to sit and eat a meal, although that's always an option as they also prepare wine paired menus.

And for those who can't resist, you can get a group of 6-8 people together and do the 60-minute sommelier tour, which gives you the added bonus of an accompanying wine fundi.

Not a wine drinker? Most venues have craft beers, ciders and non-alcoholic beverages.
