Groot Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine producing Estate – with a history that stretches back 335 years – has announced that they are cracking open their Vintage Vault and making limited quantities of some of the rarest, and best, wines in the country available for purchase.
Cape Town is packed full of amazing walks. These range from a casual scenic or historical stroll, through to dramatic hikes and extensive treks. Here are six of the best.
Robben Island Museum (RIM) is home to an 18-metre high Lighthouse that was built in 1864 by Joseph Flack and is the only South African lighthouse to utilise a flashing light instead of a revolving light. It shines for a duration of 5 seconds every seven seconds and flashes white light away from Table Bay. The light is visible for 24 nautical miles.
Cape Town’s iconic wine estate, Groot Constantia, has announced the launch of their new gift shop situated inside the revamped and revitalised tasting room at the Estate.
This exciting retail experience is a celebration of all things local and showcases unique work, inspired by Groot Constantia, from a myriad of talented local South African entrepreneurs, artists, designers, and craftsmen.
V&A WATERFRONT IS READY TO SHARE JOY FROM AFRICA TO THE WORLD THIS FESTIVE SEASON
From Johannesburg to Japan, all lights lead to the V&A’s message of light and hope.
Sustainability, collaboration, creativity and compassion are the foundation of the V&A Waterfront’s festive season this year. The 2020 festive period is preceded by months of global upheaval, extended moments of isolation and change that few of us could predict or control. Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront is ready to contribute to humanity’s attempts to restore hope and they are set to do it in a meaningful way.
The holiday season is upon us and for residents of Cape Town and surrounds, a visit – or two – to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, acclaimed as one of the great botanical gardens of the world, is always a favourite.
A great idea for something to do this summer with your family that entails fresh air, beautiful scenery, delicious food, award winning wines and fun for the kids is a visit to Groot Constantia to experience all that the estate has to offer.
Ah, Cape Town. Bikinis and boardshorts, beach days, sunsets, cocktails, nature, nightlife, and that mountain. Impossible to ignore, Table Mountain is always right in your face. You have to go around it to get anywhere, and some part of it pops up in every holiday snap you take. But this is not a bad thing.
Sunshiny days are on the way, which signals the return of The Galileo Picnic at Kirstenbosch. Packed with blockbuster films and legendary venues, their summer schedule promises to put the fun back into 2020! Local artisanal market, giant lawn games and picnic before the start of the movie at sunset. Pricing: R109 – R130p/p.
