Wine Tour of Constantia Valley

After all that fresh air, it's time for some culture and what a better way than to sample some of the best local wines.

The Wine Tour Bus is a FREE extension on the Blue Mini Peninsula Tour.

The tour trip takes you to three wine stops: Beau Constantia Wine Estate, Groot Constantia Wine Estate and Eagles' Nest Wine Farm.
