Constantia Wine Route
Firstly a little history on the Constantia area; Simon van der Stel the Governor of the Cape at the time named his farm "Constantia", he planted vineyards around 1682 and thus making this the oldest wine producing area in the Southern Hemisphere.
There are nine wine farms in this region of Cape Town that is only 15 minutes drive from the city centre with each farm offering fantastic views, fabulous wines with some wineries even offering Brandies, Gins and Grappa's, all the while not forgetting some of the best restaurants in the country.
For some reason, the Constantia wine route plays second fiddle to the Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch wine routes. We at Uyaphi would like to try and change this, by offering our clients the best of both routes. We are doing this by providing photo galleries on each estate as well as our own opinions.
Our team has been given the hard task of going out to the surrounding wine estates to taste some wine and photograph the surrounding beauty. The below photographs are a result of those excursions.
