Constantia Wine Tour
Constantia is the birthplace of the South African wine industry dating back to 1685. As you drive through the beautiful valley it is no wonder Simon van der Stel chose this prime location for his wine estate, Constantia. Constantia is the most historic of the wine growing areas and the closest to Cape Town.
