Step back in time and trace the history of viniculture in South Africa by visiting the country's first and foremost wine estates in the lush Constantia valley. Meander through the rolling vineyards on your bicycle, learning first hand about the various vintages, enjoying private wine tastings with expert sommeliers and gourmet picnics under shaded oak trees, all the while being framed beneath the mighty Table Mountain.

Your tour starts in the country's oldest estate which dates to 1685 and is often referred to as “the birthplace of South African wine”. Historic manor houses and museums pay testament to the heritage of this region, with a private cellar tour and tasting by special arrangement. Choose between a half or full day bike tour, cycle through the vineyards themselves, with panoramic views over the valley and False Bay where the Atlantic Ocean hits sunkissed beaches. A number of renowned estates are included, with the chance to meet the sommelier and sample some of the best wines this country has produced, including the notable Vin de Constance, which was personally requested by none other than Napoleon Bonaparte!
