The most upmarket of the so-called Southern Suburbs, this primarily residential zone is home to several of the Cape’s oldest wine estates, and contains a few excellent dining options as well.

If you don't have time for the Cape Winelands but still want to experience the Cape's stellar wines, Constantia's many excellent estates are a lovely compromise.
