Organic & Biodynamic Sustainable Wine Experience Overview
Groot Constantia’s revered history tells us how a man’s love of wine established the first wine farm in South Africa, going back 330 years. The largest wine estate in the region is home to Van der Stel’s (the first Governor of the new Dutch colony at the tip of Africa) original manor house and the museum is an excellent example Cape Dutch architectural style. Take a step back in time with a guided tour through the cellar and learn more about this rich history while enjoying a chocolate and award winning wine pairing.
The valley was the cradle of quality winemaking in South Africa and the name Constantia is linked with the most famous wines ever produced in this country. Enjoyed by Napoléon Bonaparte and royalty in the 18th century. Visit a wine estate, which originally formed part of the much larger, historical Constantia Estate.
Eagles’ Nest is cradled in a secluded valley on the slopes of the Constantia mountain range, forming part of the World Heritage Site, Table Mountain. The farm’s origins go back to when it was used as a refreshment station between the area now known as Wynberg in the east, and the harbour of Hout Bay in the west. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon of sipping on wine, under the tall trees, enjoying the relaxing sound of the babbling brook.
For your final stop, you will head up the mountainside to one of the highest tasting room in the Constantia Valley. You’ll finish your tour with a view across the bay all the way to the beginning of the Helderberg mountain range.
