    What to Expect
    Constantia is nestled beneath the Table Mountain National Park and has commanding vistas of the Constantiaberg and Table Mountain. The Constantia Valley truly is Cape Town’s Vineyard and winemaking history which dates back to 1685 and boasts eight award-winning wine estates: Groot Constantia, Steenberg Vineyards, Constantia Uitsig, Buitenverwachting, Eagles Nest, Constantia Glen and Silvermist Vineyards.  All vineyards are within 15 kilometres of the city centre!

    Our day of exploration starts at Groot Constantia, the country's oldest estate which dates back to 1685 and is often referred to as “the birthplace of South African wine”. Before our first tasting, we walk through the beautiful grounds and visit the museum. We ride through the gorgeous scenery to a nearby award-winning vineyard for our second tasting. The wine estates in the Constantia Valley have historic manor houses and the guides share with you their role in the early settler history of the Cape.

    We continue to a third winery where we enjoy a gourmet lunch and then cycle onward to our final tasting of the day, Steenberg. Which was owned by the confident Catherina Ras; and she was the first lady in the Cape to own land.  Enjoyed by Napoleon Bonaparte and royalty in the 18th century, Constantia Valley’s unique combination of terrain and climate produces some of the world’s finest wines that continue to this day to win accolades and international awards for consistently high standard and quality. Your day will be filled with wonderful experiences.

    Dear David Thank you so much for the rave reviews. We appreciate the positive comments regarding our Guide (Kirsty) and our equipment used on the day. We are so fortunate to have world class wine farms in Cape Town and glad that you could take a "sample" of Groot Constantia home for further enjoyment.

    Not a Bike Ride... but a Great Wine-Tasting experience at Groote Constantia with the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountain range is truly a vista to behold. The building is reflects the classic Hugenot/Dutch (from the low countries) architecture and you are immediately impressed

    Dear Henry, We are very happy that you enjoyed your day learning about the history of Groot Constantia, the area, and of course the wine even enjoyed by the late Napoleon! We hope that you can return again to learn about other areas in Cape Town rich in history. Again, thank you very much for your support. Regards, The Bike and Saddle Team.

    We did the full day Constantia tour. All very well organised and excellent wine-tasting. Not too long bike rides between and nice also to leave the roads to go more on (good) tracks in the woods. Take it easy with the wine if you are not used - remember your safety on the bike.
