Just a short drive from the Cape Town city centre and in-between beautiful mountains, valleys and forests lie the Constantia Wine Valley, home to one of the oldest wine estates in South Africa. The valley offers one of the most picturesque views and produces world class wine cultivars. Simon van der Stel personally established viticulture in the valley, and made Constantia wines world famous. Viticulture in Constantia dates back to 1685 and the region has a unique culture and heritage.

There are numerous award-winning wine estates nestled in this valley, including the world famous Groot Constantia Wine Estate. Rich in history, the majestic original Cape Dutch residence is still on the farm, and you can take a stroll around to experience the way the early settlers lived. On this tour, you will experience the taste of superb wines and perhaps a cellar tour.

The estates also offer wine pairings for your enjoyment. As these estates are in close proximity to each other, we suggest that you combine this half day tour with perhaps a half day Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden’s tour, or alternatively a boat trip to Seal Island in Hout Bay. Please refer to our City Tours for more information on Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
