Stop Press:  We will turn your Bath water into wine!

The Western Cape is suffering its worst drought in a century, in view of this and in an effort to conserve this precious resource, we have sealed our bath tubs and all rooms are now shower only. We appreciate your understanding and offer those guests affected, a free wine tasting at the famous Groot Constantia Wine estate.
