The Western Cape region
Constantia is known as one of the more up-market areas of Cape Town, with beautiful countryside, scenery and all of the trappings of contemporary living. The beautiful Constantia Valley, the jewel of the Cape, is steeped in history and breathtaking scenery. Constantia is the birthplace of the wine farming industry in South Africa. As you drive through the beautiful historical valley it is no wonder the first Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, chose this situation for his farm, Groot Constantia. Four of the only five farms which remain in the Constantia Valley today, were part of that original portion of prime land which was granted to him.
The world famous wines from Constantia were sought after by royalty in the eighteenth century, and still to this day, world class wines are being produced and accoladed for it's escalating quality. Visitors can taste the fine wines and experience a unique journey through each of the five farms, which also hold top class South African Restaurants, namely; Uitsig Restaurant, La Colombe and Katharina's at Steenberg.
The most famous of the wine farms, Groot Constantia, also has an interesting wine museum and boasts a few fine restaurants and tourist shop, not to mention wine sales.
Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Buitenverwachting, Constantia Uitsig and Steenberg farms are all within a few minutes drive of each other, and all offer wine tasting and purchasing, some of them restaurants as well. Lovers of fine wine will enjoy spending a day on this wine route just five minutes from home!
Another attraction in Constantia is a Moslem shrine, part of the Islamic holy chain of Kramats, stretching from Robben Island through Faure, Constantia, Oude Kraal and Vlaeberg.
