This morning we took a trip to Groot Constantia wine estate. Though we should have taken a picnic lunch but it was nice to get out and since it was a beautiful day just to see the country side a bit. This wine estate has an incredible history to it and to me it is one of the most beautiful wine estates in the country but in the middle of a city. There is a museum, restaurants and wine tasting to be done. Though I would love to eat at the restaurant, there are other ways of eating like one can also take a picnic along with one and just sit on the lawns overlooking the vineyards. The view overlooks the ocean and on a clear day one can see all the way to the mountains by Betty’s Bay. This doesn’t happen very often.

Then afterwards we headed off the Klein Constantia which is the baby wine estate of the area. We didn’t wine taste because it was quite expensive but we did however look around, take photos and read the history of the wine estate. It is also in a stunning area of Constantia though Klein Constantia is more on the Tokia side and Groot Constantia is in actually Constantia side of Cape Town than anywhere else.

To me it was a stunning day to get out and about in that area of the world even though it was so hot.
