Step back in time and trace the history of viniculture in South Africa by visiting the country's first and foremost wine estates in the lush Constantia valley.
Meander through the rolling vineyards on your bicycle, learning firsthand about the various vintages, enjoying private wine tastings with expert sommeliers and
gourmet picnics under shaded oak trees, all the while being framed beneath the mighty Table Mountain.
Our Eco-active adventure starts in Groot Constantia, 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 sun kissed 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 as a morning/afternoon excursion, but we recommend the full-day outing (R1499pp) to really experience the history and heritage of the
region, the fine wine and gourmet cuisine. All equipment, transport, tastings, food and beverages and cellar/museum tours are included!
