Have you tried: Visiting Port Elizabeth?
Quick Cape Town Fact: Just outside of Cape Town, there is the oldest wine industry with one of the longest wine routes in the world. Route 62 runs for 850 kilometers and ends in Port Elizabeth. In 1685, the Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, established the historic Groot Constantia Wine Estate. The very first Cape wines were produced in 1659.
