The Constantia Wine Route
As one of the country’s oldest wine regions, Constantia has captured the imagination of wine lovers across the world. Established in 1685 as one of the original Cape farms, the wine route is divided into just nine premium estates. Beau Constantia, Buitenverwachting, Constantia Glen, Constantia Royale, Eagles Nest, Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Silvermist and also Steenberg. Collectively, the farms have over 421 hectares of vine.
But what is it exactly about this cool, fresh and green beauty spot – just 15 minutes from Cape Town – that makes it so special? “It’s our terroir,” explains Carryn Wiltshire from the Constantia Wine Route. “The combination of soil, wind exposure, the region’s location in relation to the mountain and also the unique microclimate. This allows our winemakers to produce wines that can age well, show elegance over time and respect the fruit’s true sense of place.”
*The ticket price includes all wine tastings and food. This includes a selection of gourmet cheese, antipasti deli and also artisanal breads. No under 18s allowed.
