Horse-drawn Carriage Trails at Hog Hollow Horse Trails
Booking is essential!
They have a vintage 16-seater carriage drawn by two huge Percheron horses. A guide will entertain you with interesting and amusing facts and history of the area, the people as well as the local wine industry. You will, of course, receive local wine and non-alcoholic refreshments during the carriage ride. The carriage is fitted with a canopy for protection against changing weather – of course a very relevant factor in these parts.
Different wine tasting carriage trails are on offer such as one hour Carriage Wine Tasting Trail taking you through the Bramon vineyards. During this excursion you can enjoy the exquisite views as well as a sneak peak at some elephants and two tastings at the tasting centre.
There is also the half-day Carriage Wine Tasting and Lunch Trail taking you through the Crags Wine-lands and offering you two wine tastings as well as a delicious lunch.
