PUBLISHER'S LETTER

The South African wine industry plays a critical role in the economy of the Western Cape, particularly the agricultural sector, and it is also a significant player in the international wine business as the 8th largest producer in the world with nearly 1 000 million litres of wine created each year, about 40% of which is exported. The Western Cape is a popular tourism destination boasting a myriad of diverse attractions, including, of course, the Cape Winelands. South Africa’s wine routes are visited by 43% of tourists visiting South Africa and we can be sure that the number who sample South African wine while here is far higher. Not only is the Cape Winelands the third most visited tourism destination in the country but most wine routes are within easy driving distance of Cape Town (voted one of the best cities in the world to visit before you die!) and iconic Table Mountain (voted in as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World!). This is why we have created multi-media gateways enabling access to South Africa’s wine tourism experiences. The marketing company Wine Tourism South Africa highlights innovation and development in the South African wine tourism industry by shaping campaigns and products to appeal to wine lovers as opposed to wine connoisseurs. The Wine Tourism Handbook is a passport to a world of wine tourism experiences that go way beyond the cellar door, celebrating not just the wine itself but also the way in which it is made, the people who make it, the restaurants that serve it and the landscape that gives it birth. www.winetourismsouthafrica.co.za offers product updates and the opportunity to share experiences and keep up to date by joining our social networks. Our innovative Klink Wine Tourism Awards voted for by you and other members of the wine-loving public celebrate the very best of wine destinations and experiences. We invite you to come, celebrate and fall in love with South Africa’s wine tourism offerings. KLINK! Monika Elias

Wine Tourism Routes

Constantia

Constantia

CONSTANTIA

This is where it all began in the 17th century: South African winemaking started here and it is still the first stop for quality wines, close to the heart of Cape Town. The terroir remains terrific for both whites and reds.

BUITENVERWACHTING

Did you know... That million rands worth of china was stolen from Groot Constantia on May 20th 2012, much of which is still unrecovered. Visit now while stocks last…

C

lassy and convenient

The beautiful Constantia Valley is an oasis of leafy splendour just twenty minutes from the city centre and it has been home to creative winemakers for over 300 years. Besides the natural beauty of the valley and the world-class wines crafted here, the Constantia wine region is very much en route when exploring both the city and the Cape peninsula. The wine route comprises ten wine farms, all set on beautiful estates and with their own unique stories to tell.

ley is South Africa’s oldest wine estate, Groot Constantia, then Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel’s original farm. The buildings have been carefully restored and house, amongst other attractions, a cultural history museum in the original manor house. There are two restaurants on-site or you can book ahead for a picnic basket to be enjoyed under the estate’s ancient oaks. One of the sub-divisions of the original farm is Klein Constantia, whose Vin de Constance was reputedly a favourite of Napoleon’s and is also mentioned by Dickens and Jane Austen. Next door, High Constantia is one of the farms that has been replanted more recently and now produces wines of outstanding quality. Its silverleaf trees gave the farm its original name ‘Wittebomen’ (white trees) and these notoriously difficult-to-grow trees remain a distinguishing characteristic of the area.

Constantia Uitsig, also once part of the original

Constantia farm, is a quietly luxurious place to stay and indulge one’s senses: an exclusive country hotel, a bustling wine shop, a sybaritic spa and three much-lauded and loved restaurants, one of which overlooks an idyllically sited cricket oval. For an experience ‘beyond expectation’, a visit to elegant oak-circled Buitenverwachting next door is essential: excellent wines and a restaurant to match. Nearby equally historic Steenberg wine estate continues to transform itself: its established luxury hotel and golf course have been joined by its awardwinning wine tasting centre, a popular bistro (Sixteen82) and a brand new bubbly bar called Gorgeous. It is also a national monument dating back to 1682. Testament to this is the hotel’s moulded ‘Holbol’ gable: it is the only surviving example of its kind in the Cape peninsula.

Stunning views, steep slopes and very special wines

Eagles’ Nest Winery and Beau Constantia are youngsters compared to their historic neighbours; but it hasn’t taken long for them to make their mark. Located high up on the slopes of the Constantia mountains, they offer views as fine as their wines. Neighbouring Constantia Glen offers a small, highly-regarded range of two red blends and local favourite, Sauvignon Blanc. A little further afield is another hillside wine farm, the award-winning Cape Point Vineyards, known for their outstanding white wines and their lofty picnic lawns. Almost all the Constantia wine farms are open to the public daily and they are well worth visiting, not only for the quality wines created here but also for the scenery, the sense of history and the many gourmet restaurants, spas and attractions on offer. WHAT CONSTANTIA DOES BEST • Chardonnay • History • Méthode Cap Classique • Red Blends (Bordeaux) • Sauvignon Blanc • White Blends.

WHAT TO DO A Bubbly Bar called Gorgeous The full selection of Graham Beck’s awardwinning Méthode Cap Classiques can be enjoyed with specially paired canapés created by Executive Chef Garth Almazan of Catharina’s restaurant. T: 021 713 7177 www.gorgeousbygrahambeck.com Chart Farm for Pick-your-own Roses Set on a hill as you approach Constantia, this charming farm is known for its homemade cakes, Terrace Café and acres of roses. Great place for tea with a view. T: 021 762 0067 www.chartfarm.co.za Picnics Book ahead for a relaxed, informal picnic experience under the ancient oaks (pets welcome) at Groot Constantia – choose from a variety of picnic hampers including kiddies options. T: 021 794 1143 www.grootconstantia.co.za Porter Estate Fresh Produce Market Offering fabulous, fresh produce and hearty farm-style breakfasts, this market, set on the grounds of the Chrysalis Academy at Tokai Manor in Tokai Forest, is a great place to spend a Saturday morning with the kids. T: 082 334 5434 www.outdoormarket co.za

DOING THE RIGHT THING Beau Constantia has an ongoing programme to remove alien vegetation and replace it with indigenous vegetation such as silver leaf trees and proteas, while Eagles’ Nests focus remains on its nesting pair of Verraux’s Eagles. www.beauconstantia.com and www.eaglesnestwines.com

Elgin

Elgin

Blossom with Thandi New owners in Nov 2011. Same friendly service and simple but delicious country menu including crisp, melt-in-the-mouth vetkoek and chicken and mushroom pie. Boutique local wines too and a goodly range of art bears and Spanish olive oil. Good value and child-friendly. Cape Country T: 021 844 0343

The Pool Room at Oak Valley This recently opened restaurant on this highlyregarded wine estate is high on poolside ambience and showcases the farm’s homebred beef and pork charcuterie – and Wagyu (Kobe) beef is on the way too. A space worth watching, we think. For more information on menus and opening hours contact Nicole Precoudis as below. Deli, Tapas T: 021 859 4111 www.oakvalley.co.za

Fresh at Paul Cluver The garden at Paul Cluver supplies Fresh with vegetables, benefiting everything from Caprese toasties to Apple crumble, washed down with fresh orange juice, homemade lemonade or, of course, Paul Cluver wine. Simple but tasty home-made pies and burgers, with decadent brownies to follow. Bistro T: 071 563 6020 www.freshrestaurant.co.za

The Venue at South Hill Traditional French-style cooking using seasonal ingredients was the thing here but Gordon Manuel will have moved to Mofam on the river by the time you read this (see Where to Stay). So call South Hill to see what’s on the menu now. The guesthouse and art gallery make this farm worth a detour anyway. French-style T: 021 421 1367 www.southhill.co.za

WHERE TO EAT

groves, makes for a perfect day trip, but, why not stay a little longer in a range of friendly B&Bs, five star hotels, farm cottages or self-catering accommodation? Or hike the Green mountain eco-route joining Elgin and neighbouring Bot River, as it winds its way through mountains, valleys and vineyards past eateries, art galleries and activity centres. There are plenty of rivers to swim, fish, water-ski or canoe in and trails to walk, hike or bike. In fact, Oak Valley is a bit of a mountain bike mecca. Try guided fynbos walks, barrel tastings, cut flower tours, yoga in the spring blossoms and a whole lot more! WHAT ELGIN IS GOOD AT • Apples • Gardens • Pinot Noir • Rolling Hills • Sauvignon Blanc 236

wi n e t o u r i sm h and b o o k 2 0 1 3

MORE TO DO Elgin Open Gardens Towards the end of October each year, over 20 fabulous gardens open to the public for just two weekends: food and wine available at many, plants too. Quite magical. T: 021 844 0154 www.elginopengardens.co.za Watersports Elgin is blessed with dams and rivers, including the Palmiet at Mofam, where you can kayak, fish or learn to waterski and wakeboard. We dare you to try the Wake Snake! T: 021 846 8345 www.mofam.co.za

WHERE TO STAY Mofam River Lodge A row of riverside luxury chalets and, a little further away, some more secluded cottages. Gordon Manuel restaurant, bar, cruises and watersports training available. T: 021 846 8345 www.mofam.co.za Oak Valley Guest Cottage Stay in a renovated historic cottage with all facilities provided, including mountain bike trails offering varying challenges. T: 021 859 2510 www.oakvalley.co.za Old Mac Daddy Luxury Trailer Park Airstream caravans individually themed on an Elgin hillside plus a more mainstream cottage called Daddy’s Villa. A restaurant and valley views complete the picture. T: 021 844 0241 www.oldmacdaddy.co.za Wildekrans Country House Bed and breakfast or self-catering accommodation on offer at this charming destination. Don’t miss the art in the garden. T: 028 284 9827 www.wildekrans.co.za

THE LITTLE GUYS Almenkerk From lace-making to winemaking, from Belgium to the Cape. It’s a jump the van Almenkerk family has made with seeming ease. After only three vintages their Sauvignon and Chardonnay are making waves. ‘Lace’ red also offers great value. As do the views. T: 021 848 9844 www.almenkerk.co.za Catherine Marshall A pinotphile from head to toe, Cathy Marshall describes the wine like oxygen: ‘You can’t do without it!’ She produces two versions from the Elgin fruit she loves. Her Shiraz blend and Sauvignon Blanc are equally smart. T: 083 258 1307 www.cmwines.co.za
