In 1685, Simon van der Stel was granted permission to produce wine in the Cape. He had the choice of the entire Cape Town area. He chose the Constantia Valley. Today the Constantia Valley is Cape Town’s Vine Yard, South Africa’s oldest and leading Wine and Tourist Destination as well as the oldest wine producing region in the Southern Hemisphere. Constantia Valley is in the centre of the Cape Peninsula. We are minutes away from the City Centre and also close to all Cape Point attractions. The leafy Valley is Cape Town’s secret rural retreat , a quiet relief from the hustle and bustle of the busy city.
