Begin your cycle adventure at the country’s oldest wine farm, Groot Constantia Estate with an introduction to a full array of the valley’s award-winning wines. Recognised as the “birthplace of South African wine”, its beautifully restored historic manor house is now a museum that pays testament to the heritage of this region. Cycling from estate to estate, discover first-hand the various grapes that are cultivated against the steep lower slopes of Table Mountain and the surprising variety it allows.
The route meanders through the up-market Constantia suburb, a hub of excellent examples of Cape Dutch architecture. Explore iconic vineyards like Buitenverwachting, Groot Constantia, Constantia Uitsig and Steenberg and take a wander through their cellars. Experience the oldest wine region of South Africa – on a bicycle!
