Wine Cycle Constantia
Enjoy a beautiful and fun tour, the wine cycle Constantia, in one of the most beautiful parts in South Africa. Just 15 min from Cape Town you find some of the oldest wine farms surrounded by splendid beauty. See, feel and smell this exquisite area while cycling to the wine farms and tasting some of South Africa’s best wines and food.
Meeting point: 9am at the parking area, corner of Constantia Main and Groot Constantia Road.
OR why don’t you take the hop on, hop off bus from Cape Town? Use the purple route, meet us at Groot Constantia and combine the tour with some cycling….. thereafter you continue by bus back to Cape Town. Our times are flexible but booking is essential.
Your guide will meet you here and help you with the set up of the bicycle. A short ride takes you to the beautiful Groot Constantia wine farm. Groot Constantia is known to be the oldest wine farm in South Africa, established in 1685. We visit a museum where you learn about the history of this wine estate.
Thereafter we ride through the beautiful area to Tokai forest for a circular route along indigenous fynbos, which forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
Time for a taste of the delicious wines of this area. We visit the rustic Wine Shop of Constantia Uitsig, and enjoy a taste of six different wines of this well known estate.
From here we continue our cycle through the picturesque Constantia Valley until we reach Klein Constantia. Dating back to 1685 and described as one of the world’s most beautiful farms with views over the False Bay, Klein Constantia produces some of South Africa’s finest wines including one of the world’s best natural sweet wines, Vin de Constance. We enjoy a taste of the excellent wines and learn about the winemaking during a short cellar tour ( in season only ).
Another highlight of the day is a wine tasting and picnic ( weather dependant ) at one of the beautiful wine estat on the slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg mountains.
A short cycle back to the starting point from where you will make your way back home.
