Half or Full Day | Constantia Wine Valley
Step back in time and trace the history of viniculture in South Africa by visiting the country's foremost wine estates in the lush Constantia valley. Meander through the rolling vineyards on your bicycle, learning first hand about the various vintages, all the while framed by the brooding backdrop of the mighty Table Mountain. The valley also boasts an array of award-winning restaurants that are consistently voted among the best in the world.
Time for another wine tasting of course!
Leaving the Constantia Winelands behind us
Our trademark Eco-active adventure starts in the country's oldest estate which dates to 1685 and is often referred to as “the birthplace of South African wine”. Historic manor houses and museums pay testament to the heritage of this region, with a private cellar tour and tasting by special arrangement. We cycle through the vineyards themselves, with panoramic views over the valley and False Bay where the Atlantic Ocean hits sunkissed beaches. A number of renowned estates are included, with the chance to meet the sommelier and sample some of the best wines this country has produced, including the notable Vin de Constance, which was personally requested by none other than Napoleon Bonaparte!
NB: This tour can be done in half a day, but we recommend the full-day outing to really experience the heritage, fine wine and gourmet cuisine.
