Constantia, South Africa
Constantia Glen is ideally located below Constantia Nek, just moments from the bustling Cape Town city centre. We are a picturesque boutique wine estate producing ultra-premium, cool climate wines. Steeped in history, Constantia is the oldest wine producing region in South Africa dating back to 1685.
Constantia Glen has a unique position cradled between the Constantiaberg and Table Mountain ranges, with predominantly north-east facing slopes. This singular location allows for exposure to late afternoon sun, ideal for the slow ripening that shapes the classically expressed wines. Decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone are the dominant soil types that lend minerality and the graceful character to our wines. High water retention of the rich clay sub-soils allow for sustainable dryland cultivation, while ecologically sound practices include biological insect and pest control by means of natural predators. Our intrinsic terroir footprint is echoed in the uniqque insignia embossed on every Constantia bottle.
