Established in 1685 as one of the original Cape farms, the wine route is now divided into just nine, premium estates – Beau Constantia, Buitenverwachting, Constantia Glen, Constantia Royale, Eagles Nest, Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Silvermist, and Steenberg. Collectively, the farms have over 421 hectares of vine. But what is it about this cool, fresh and green beauty spot – just 15-minutes from Cape Town – that makes it so special?
It’s our terroir. The combination of soil, wind exposure, the region’s location in relation to the mountain, and unique microclimate, allows our winemakers to produce wines that can age well, show elegance over time and respect the fruit’s true sense of place.
