The tour begins with a visit to Groot Constantia, oldest of all New-World wineries. Governor van der Stel's impressive Cape Dutch homestead, built in 1685, is still surrounded by vineyards producing outstanding vintages. After a quick tour of the house with its impressive Old Masters and Batavian furniture, we repair to the tasting cellar to sample the red and white varietals, which have made this estate so famous. The tour proceeds to another venerable valley estate, high up on the slopes of Tokai Mountain.

Steenberg was established in 1682, and here we meet the wine-maker, John Loubser (born a little later!) who will take us on a personalized walk through his cellar. John's wine making expertise, long recognized within the industry, recently achieved national acclaim when his 2004 Sauvignon Blanc was the only such vintage in South Africa awarded Five Stars by the John Platter Wine Guide. The tour ends with a light lunch in the valley, followed by drop-off at city or suburban hotels.
