Beau Constantia is a boutique wine farm situated very high up on the Constantia Mountains where meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard leads to distinctive handcrafted wines.
This beautiful farm on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg and barely 12km from False Bay, originally formed part of the Constantia Estate, which was founded by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the new Dutch colony at the tip of Africa.
Cape Point Vineyards is uniquely located in Noordhoek in the Cape Point Peninsula where our close proximity to the ocean and the ancient soils of the Table Mountain Range not only provides a phenomenal setting, but also a terroir ideal for the production of world-class Sauvignon Blanc that is strong in minerality and complexity.
We try to work as naturally as possible in the vineyards, using cover cropping, mulching and integrated pest management programmes. Flowers play a central theme at Uitsig too – welcoming a diversity of beneficial insects and bright colours to the vineyards whilst our farm-made compost enriches the soil.
Constantia Glen is ideally located below Constantia Nek, just moments from the bustling Cape Town city centre. We are a picturesque boutique wine estate producing ultra-premium, cool climate wines. Steeped in history, Constantia is the oldest wine producing region in South Africa dating back to 1685.
Eagles’ Nest is cradled in the secluded Constantia Valley on some of the steepest vineyards in South Africa, allowing for the creation of rare, distinct and exceptional wines. From vintage to vintage, the wines consistently express the characteristics of each cultivar, giving a rounded complex structure with quality throughout.
Starting at the original Manor House, the unique new Visitors Route takes guests to the Cloete Cellar, the birthplace of the famed Grand Constance. Here one can enjoy a wine tasting of five award-winning wines in a Spiegelau crystal glass – yours to take home as a souvenir.
The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley – picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300 year history.
Originally called “The Treehouse Eatery” and located further up on the Estate, The Green Vine was re-branded three years ago when they moved to their current building on the property.
The Estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as the best in South Africa and among the finest in the New World.
Nestled in stone with maturing Pinot Noir below, the Haute Cabrière tasting room is the perfect platform to indulge in our wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In summer, take in the unique view of the Franschhoek Valley, whilst in winter enjoy tastings next to our fireplace.
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.
