Ahh the famous South African wine. You simply cannot come to South Africa and not visit a winery & the area of Constantia in Cape Town is world famous for its wine production, so a little wine tasting session is a must.
There are many tours you can do, on our last trip to SA 2 years ago we had childcare so did a full day of tours visiting 4 different winery’s, not only was the wine delicious but it was fascinating to see the whole process of wine production. One of the many things I loved was the fact they play music to the vines. Happy vines- great wine!
So this time as we had our 3 year old daughter with us we decided to visit the Constantia Glen winery for lunch and a small wine & chocolate tasting. It’s a very picturesque boutique wine estate in stunning surroundings. Let me just say I felt very comfortable in these surroundings. Wine, Sun, great food, what’s not to love???
It cost just £6 for a 3 wine & chocolate tasting which was utterly delicious & of course we bought a bottle to take home. The sun was shining and we dined outside it was such a perfect setting. My husband & I have always said we would do a wedding blessing & party on our 10th wedding anniversary in South Africa & a vineyard is a great place for a party. We loved it here and it’s definitely on the shortlist.
Next stop was the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens. We went to meet some family for a picnic but got there early enough to have a good walk around first. It always reminds me of Jurassic Park, minus the dinosaurs Obvs. It’s so lush, green and overlooked by table mountain it’s really quite breathtaking.
kirstenbosch also offers live music performances on Sunday afternoons.. Gather your picnic baskets and blankets, meet with friends and family, enjoy the stunning surroundings to live music.
As long as I come back to Cape Town I’ll always find time to visit these beautiful gardens. They’re just magical.
