Constantia Valley Wine Region
This is where it all started for the Cape wine industry. The most famous winery in South Africa is Groot Constantia, and it is worthy of a visit. Though it is well patronized, the size of the farm ensures that it does not get overly crowded. The cool marine breezes in summer are excellent for wine making and there are a number of wine farms recently established on the upper slopes of Constantia neck.
Due to the proximity to other cultural attractions this is an ideal way of combining a wine experience with some sight – seeing. Steenberg and Buitenverwachting are also well regarding in terms of their wines and food venues. Steenberg in particular has a very luxurious setting with an immaculate golf course and hotel. Kirstenbosch is in close proximity and is a national botanical garden. It is well worth setting aside a day in the area and I would be honoured for you to Be my guest.
