Description

A perfect chance for wine lovers to discover some of the finest wines South Africa has to offer.

The Constantia Winelands is a spectacular wine experience, taking you to a unique combination of century-old, established wine farms and new boutique estates in a setting of unsurpassed beauty and heritage.

What to expect

Departing from Cape Town, this tour heads south along the Peninsula towards Constantia, taking in spectacular views along the way. When you arrive, you’ll enjoy a tour of the famous Constantia wine ward, nestled on the southern slopes of the Table Mountain range, in the Constantia Valley.

The historic valley, with vineyards rooted in ancient soil clinging to the eastern slopes of the Constantiaberg Mountains, was home to 17th-century Dutch governor, Simon van der Stel's wine farm. Its legendary dessert wines graced the tables of the European monarchy in the 18th century. The vines benefit from the cool sea breezes blowing in from False Bay and the 1,000mm of annual rain which makes irrigation unnecessary.

Today it is home to a number of award-winning wine estates which continue the tradition of producing wines from classic European noble varieties. It is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of modern city life in a magnificent, mountainous countryside. Stroll through the beautiful grounds whilst tasting wines produced just a short walk away, or meander through the rolling vineyards on your bicycle, learning first hand about the various vintages.

The area is celebrated for its Sauvignon Blancs, Semillons and Chardonnays, from the Steenberg, Constantia Uitsig and Buitenverwachting estates. However, wonderful Merlots, Cabernet, Shiraz and red blends in classic Bordeaux styles are also made at Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia and High Constantia. The area's famed signature wine, however, is still the exquisite Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia. This is a world class destination not to be missed.

GREAT GUIDE

By: Kandee


Reviewed on: 24 Jun 2017

Our guide, Ryan Straus, was professional and knowledgeable. He assessed our personalities and our specific interests and adjusted our daily schedule to match. In addition, he was able to encourage us to see and do some things that we didn't even know we wanted to do! A very personal guided tour with a fun and warm young man. He is an asset to Triumph Travel.

Our experience with Triumph travel was out of this world. The whole trip was a trip of a lifetime. We only had on small hiccup, and it was handled very quickly and efficiently. When we landed in Capetown, we realized that no one was there to pick us up and drive us to the Winelands. We called the travel company, and sixth star travel, and within 10 minutes there was a luxury car there to take us to the Windlands. The tour company did not have our updated flight itinerary , as the original itinerary had us coming in 3 hours later. They really stepped us and took care of the situation.

Our day in the South African wine country with Triumph Travel was great. Our driver, Leonard, was very knowledgeable of the various wineries and the whole wine country. We enjoyed very much talking with him about his personal life and growing up in the Cape Town area. He treated us at the end of the tour with a surprise stop at the prison that Nelson Mandela was finally released from. It turned out to a real highlight of the day.
