This private-access walking tour visits three iconic wine farms in the Constantia Valley – Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia and Buitenverwachting. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, you’ll wander through the vineyards, taste 10 wines and enjoy a delicious harvest platter lunch at the final stop.
Constantia is the oldest wine region in the southern hemisphere, with its wine – famously “sweet, luscious and agreeable” – the toast of ballrooms and palaces across Europe in the 1700s. Every notable figure desired it and loved it. Queen Victoria drank a glass each night, while Napoleon drank a bottle a day. And ever since then, this lush corner of vineyards and oak trees on the Cape Peninsula has attracted tourists and wine connoisseurs from around the world. Today, the Constantia Wine Walk takes you on private trails to the iconic farms in the valley, allowing you get a taste of what makes Constantia such a unique and fascinating wine capital of the world while enjoying the best wine and food in the region.
Walking between three wine farms allows you to better understand Constantia’s terroir while savouring the incredible ocean, mountain and vineyard views.
Delicious Wine and Food
We pop bubbles in the vineyards and taste 10 wines along the way. A snack pack is provided to pair with the wines we taste at three wine farms. A harvest platter lunch is served at the final stop.
Freemasons and Amazonian warriors, Great Gatsby-esque parties and tragic fires, 15-man morning orchestras and farm-owning freed slaves – the story of Constantia is as unique as its wine.
