Sample some of the Cape’s
finest wine blends. Enjoy
fine wines from the Constantia
Valley or the classic Wine
Route. Range of varieties on
offer to taste.
The Cape is home to some of the world’s finest wine farms, with award winning varieties including Spier, Jordan and Springfield. The most common varieties are Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Pinotage, Pinot-Noir and Method Cap Classic.
The Cape is known for its top wines, with two main wine growing regions to be explored, both offering wine tasting. While the Wine Route is the most famous wine tasting destination, and includes stops at farms in Stellebosch, Franschoek and Paarl, there is another wine route further down the peninsula.
The Constantia Valley is rich and fertile, with ideal grape growing conditions. Wine estates such as Groot Constantia and Klein Constantia are situated within this valley. The drive through this valley is breathtaking; with endless tree lined roads with vineyards in the fields as far as the eye can see. Groot Constantia offers a comprehensive wine tasting experience, as well as wine sales at good value.
Picnics or farm lunches can be enjoyed on the farm grounds to wind off the wine tasting.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
