Perched high on the upper reaches of the Constantiaberg in the oldest wine producing region of South Africa, lies the magnificent boutique wine estate, Constantia Glen. Acclaimed for bespoke wines and sweeping panoramic views, Constantia Glen is one of the gems of the Constantia Valley, the home of South African wine with a proud history of winemaking dating back to 1685. Cradled between the slopes of the Constantiaberg overlooking False Bay, Constantia Glen’s 60 hectares of undulating landscape have been under the present ownership since the 1960's. In recent times the farm has undergone numerous transformations from rolling forest hills to an Angus cattle stud, before finally accepting the historical inevitability of a return to vineyard production. Coffee and chocolate is offered to designated drivers...

Did You Know...? With an impressive record of consistently achieving 4½ stars for every wine ever featured in the Platter’s South African Wines guide, tasting Constantia Glen wines while enjoying the sweeping views from their tasting room amidst the vineyards is a rare pleasure.
