You’ll join one of our Cape Town hosts who’s a fellow oenophile (a fancy word for a wine lover) and sip your way around some of the oldest wineries in the country.

Here you’ll find perfectly maintained Cape Dutch buildings, vast, landscaped gardens with sweeping views of False Bay, museums, and of course, a selection of award-winning wines and fresh ingredients from delectable dishes grown and prepared right on the slopes of Table Mountain.

You’ll sample everything from Sauvignon Blanc to Shiraz and maybe even do a cellar tour or two to discover the journey from grape to glass.

One particular dessert wine has been produced for over 300 years and is mentioned in the writings of Charles Dickens and Emily Dickens and drank by Napoleon on his exile on St Helena island!

But history and wine tasting make for hungry work, when it’s time to refuel, your host can recommend a laid-back cafe or a fine-dining restaurant, whatever takes your fancy, where you can relax and chat to them about the unique history and diverse cultures that make up Cape Town - wine in hand, of course!

There are several wineries in the region, and, together with your host, you can handpick two that will help you gain a true appreciation for South Africa’s celebrated wines. 

 

    • Explore the delightful neighborhood of Constantia with a host who is passionate about sharing the very best of the region's wines with you. Learn to pair wine with food and sample the finest wines bursting with their own distinctive flavors.
    • Visit the old Manor House, once the heart of the estate, is now a museum that offers insight into the city’s early settlers and wine-making history.
    • Shadow your host, who will lead you to the tasting rooms where you can sample the famous wines of Groot Constantia, many of which have received international awards.
    • From Groot Constantia, your host will present you with the possibility of visiting one or two equally iconic Cape wine estates - Steenberg Estate or Constantia Glen.
    • If you’re eager to sample South African MCC, then your host might suggest you venture to the beautiful grounds of Steenberg.
    • Sample South African MCC with some superb cheese or charcuterie platters to compliment your beverages at the scenically stunning Constantia Glenn.
    • Although it would be difficult to squeeze in more than two famous estates in a single day, your host will be happy to suggest other top estates to include, or the best wines to look out for at local restaurants and supermarkets.
