Great Wine at Groot Constantia Vineyards:
Wine Tour, yes please! On a recent visit to Cape Town, South Africa, we visited the Groot Contantia Vineyards, in Contantia, Cape Town. This vineyard is the oldest one in the Cape and has a proud history, and awards to show for the quality of their wines.
Oak Barrels resting:
While on the tour I took this picture, and I feel it totally gives you the feel of the tour. All this lovely red wine resting in beautiful oak barrels.
Barrels of Different sizes:
The one thing I did not realise was that the barrels were available in different sizes. From very large to the smaller traditional size barrels. Barrels are also only used 5 times before being retired to make brandy or other spirits.
