Cape Tours with Mac

The Constantia Wine Route is the most spectacular wine experience in the world, offering a unique blend of centuries-old established wine homesteads and new, stylish boutique wineries in a setting of unsurpassed beauty and heritage.

Constantia is the oldest wine region in Southern Africa. The first Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, researched the soils and climate and determined that the region had the best climate to plant vines – the first were planted here in 1685.

Constantia wines, grown on the slopes of Table Mountain, have been world famous ever since – Napoleon Bonaparte, on his deathbed, requested the sweet wines of Constantia.
