Constantia

Grande dame of the Cape Winelands


Thanks to its convenient location a mere 20 minutes from Cape Town, the wine-producing Constantia has become the Mother City’s unofficial backyard vineyard. This lush valley is home to the country’s oldest wine estates and to Cape Town’s oldest suburb.

With a history dating back over 300 years, the Constantia Valley is the birthplace of the South African wine industry and the region is dotted with several award-winning estates offering daily wine tours and tastings. But vino isn’t all Constantia’s vineyards and Cape Dutch houses have to offer: dine on fine cuisine at Silvermist Wine Estate’s celebrated La Colombe restaurant, practice your swing at Steenberg’s 18-hole golf course, or combine a spa day with your sauvignon blanc at Constantia Uitsig.

It is, however, pointless to visit Constantia without trying a tipple. The region is especially renowned for its white wines and dessert wines. Be sure to taste Klein Constantia’s Vin de Constance (previously known as Muscat Capp Constantia), a dessert wine that enjoyed international popularity in the 18th and 19th century and was a favourite of Jane Austen, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Charles Dickens.
