Groot Constantia: A national treasure and officially the oldest wine estate in South Africa, Groot Constantia offers a selection of fine restaurants, lush lawns for picnicking, and historical museums. Previous pages: Groot Constantia, Cape Town; Laborie, Paarl.

Historical roots: The Groot Constantia Manor House, now a cultural history museum, provides a rare glimpse into the lives of affluent wine estate owners in the eighteenth century. It has elegant gables on the outside; the inside offers the visitor a superb display of Cape furniture, porcelain and maritime art.

Buitenverwachting: Food and wine coexist in perfect harmony at Buitenverwachting, an estate that occupies the east-facing slopes of Constantiaberg and which was once part of the bigger Constantia estate.

Zevenwacht: The varied soils of this magnificent estate have allowed winemakers to plant a selection of white and red noble varietals which produce classic, well-crafted wines. The estate, with its beautiful views across the Cape Peninsula, draws visitors to its country inn, charming vineyard cottages, conferencing facilities and spa.

Blaauwklippen: Proud tradition is part of the experience at Blaauwklippen, an estate in the Stellenbosch region that has been producing wine for more than 300 years and today attracts many visitors with its nostalgic ambience.

Franschhoek: The influx of French Huguenots (1687-89) is commemorated by the imposing Huguenot Monument. It was the beginning of viticulture in the valley and the root of a proud French tradition that flourishes to this day. The village even celebrates Bastille Day!
