Our 3 Favourite Places to do Wine Tastings around Cape Town – whether you’re looking for stunning views, a family setting or unusual wine tastings.
Constantia is the oldest wine region in South Africa and has excellent wineries, fantastic shopping opportunities and a variety of great restaurants.
Located in the center of Cape Peninsula, the Constantia Valley extends to the south-east slopes of Table Mountain National Park and is a 10-minute drive from Cape Town city center.
Since the time of governor Simon van der Stel (end of 1600), Constantia Valley has been famous for its excellent wines.
Stellenbosch, thanks to its strategic position within the Wine Route, is, in fact, the perfect spot to appreciate the hundreds of vineyards that distinguish the area. From here you can choose one or more wineries to spend a day in the wine tasting, where to experience a quality experience in an evocative setting between vineyards with eye drops and secular oaks.
Rust en Vrede
Rust en Vrede: Just outside Stellenbosch, at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain and completely immersed in nature, Rust en Vrede is a winery that since 1977 produces only red wine, particularly Syrah, Cabernet and Merlot. The label Rust en Vrede in time has received numerous awards. His wines have been chosen for dinner at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony for President Nelson Mandela in Oslo and Queen of Denmark for a lunch with their family. Not only that, Rust en Vrede has been the winner for four consecutive years at “Top 100 Wines of the World” as the best South African wine.
