Cape Town’s numerous wine estates are a great place to get gifts, and Groot Constantia is one of the oldest in the country, situated just 20 minutes outside the city. Pick up some fine South African wines at the historic estate, or for a unique gift, try the Grande Constance. It’s a sweet wine from the Napoleonic era, and can be purchased at the Cloete Cellar, the only place where it was ever produced. The Cloete Cellar also hosts a tasting room and a museum where a 195-year-old bottle of Grand Constance, brought back to its birthplace, is on display.
