Crouching beneath the Constantiaberg Mountain in the Constantia Valley – a 20-minute drive from the city centre – the historic Constantia Wine Route (not to be confused with the Cape Winelands) dates back to 1685, and is the birthplace of the world-renowned wine industry in South Africa – Napoleon Bonaparte is rumored to have ordered wine from this region as one of his last requests.
As a result, the estates in this area all have a storied past, and boast beautiful grounds and heritage homesteads and wineries – you’ll find some of the oldest and finest examples of Cape Dutch architecture in this area. It’s also home to some of the region’s most famous estates – including Groot Constantia, Buitenverwachting and Klein Constantia – as well as incredibly picturesque venues like Beau Constantia, Silvermist Organic Vineyards, and Steenberg Vineyards. The idea is to spend a leisurely few hours doing a tasting, exploring the grounds and enjoying a good meal in a beautiful setting.
Furthermore, this wine region is very easily accessible from the city and Atlantic Seaboard areas – a short drive, or accessible on a day tour or on the Cape Town “hop-on, hop off” bus service (a great way to see and learn about the city).
