Constantia Valley Wine Estates

The Constantia Wine Route in Cape Town comprises Buitenverwachting, Steenberg, Constantia Uitsig, Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Beau Constantia, Silvermist, Constantia Glen and Eagle’s Nest. This is the first established wine growing region in the whole of southern Africa, dating back to the 17th century. Initially, sweet wines were produced here. These wines were of such a superior quality that they were demanded by European royals and aristocrats, Napoleon Bonaparte was one of these Constantia wine-lovers of old.

The Constantia Valley is the centre of this wine route, and is particularly scenic. With Table Mountain creating a magnificent backdrop, and hundreds of thousands of grapevines rolling down undulating hills, the vistas are simply exquisite from every angle.

Because of the extensive wine history of the Constantia Wine Route, there is a wine museum at the Groot Constantia estate. This offers guided tours and has been established to pay homage to and create awareness of the ever-growing wine industry here.

The wines produced in Constantia are recognised worldwide for being of the highest quality. For this reason, wine tastings and tours of the cellars are a must. These provide the opportunity to sample and purchase some of the best wines available as well as to learn more about the process from grape to table wine. Some of the wine farms have their own restaurants, which pair their delectable cuisine with their top-notch wines for a taste bud phenomenon.
