A trip to the western Cape is not complete without a relaxing journey through the Winelands. The closest wine farm to Cape Town is the Constantia wine route, which encompasses nine farms in the beautiful southern suburb of Constantia. Venture further out to Stellenbosch, where some of the first Cape farms are situated, or the quaint French-influenced town of Franschoek, to experience the vineyards nestled in the mountains. The Hemel en Aarde Valley near Hermanus is also stunning, where you can combine a day of wine drinking with whale watching! Get involved in the planning of your own Cape Winelands holiday online.
