Lunch is not included but will be served in Kalk Bay, a former fishing community with its still interesting harbor. Thereafter we reach Constantia, not only a very affluent suburb but also home to the oldest wine estate of the Western Cape. Buitenverwachting was founded by Simon van der Steel, produc- ing wines of complex and unique character up until today. Enjoy a wine tasting before we continue to Klein Constantia Wine Estate for another one. Founded in 1689!
