Next, visit a wine estate which originally formed part of the Constantia Estate. Eagles’ Nest is cradled in a secluded valley on the slopes of the Constantia mountain range, forming part of the World Heritage Site, Table Mountain. The farm’s origins go back to when it was used as a refreshment station between the area now known as Wynberg in the east, and the harbour of Hout Bay in the west.
 
Enjoy a leisurely afternoon sipping wine under the tall trees, enjoying the relaxing sound of the babbling brook.
 
For your final stop you will head up the mountainside to one of the highest tasting rooms in the Constantia Valley. Finish the tour with a view across the bay all the way to the beginning of the Helderberg mountain range.
