Episode 4: Groot Constantia Wine Estate
by Chris van der Leer on March 16th, 2017

​This video is one of a 10 part series constituting a North to South 'tour' of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa. 

The oldest wine producing estate in South Africa, creating award winning wines for 330 years. The views and grounds were stunning. This is a nice place to sit in the sun and soak in the scenery (though the tasting itself is indoors). 

Got to love that Cape Dutch or Cape Baroque architecture, and of course Anton Anreiths works in wine cellars gables. It is interesting to note that the Cape Barogue style has roots in medieval Netherlands, Germany, France and Indonesia.

The big benefit of visiting this wine farm is that it is well within the City limits, hence no long travel times.
