    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Take a stroll through some of the Cape’s most picturesque vineyards and meet the cast of grapes that give Groot Constantia’s wine so much personality. They’re a competitive bunch, and while Monsieur de Frontignan likes to reminisce about the glory of his youth, Pinotage and Ms Sauvignon Blanc are all about triumphing at international wine shows.

    Nobody knows them better than Floricius Beukes, the estate’s viticulturist. He’ll join you on this playful walk, which will delight visitors of all ages – even those who aren’t yet old enough for their first glass of wine.
