Constantia Wine Valley
Constantia, birthplace of the Cape wine industry, is one of the most exclusive suburbs in South Africa – close to the city centre yet with a distinctly rural feel.
Located in the foothills of the Constantiaberg on the Cape Peninsula, this lush, green suburb is home to award-winning wine estates and fine dining establishments.
Grapes were first cultivated by Simon van der Stel at Groot Constantia in 1685. Today Groot Constantia wine estate is South Africa's oldest and most historic, with a unique terrior that ensures the production of superb quality wine.
Many of the wine estates in the Constantia valley feature beautiful Cape Dutch manor houses which are open to the public for viewing.
