Ideally located below Constantia Nek, just moments from the bustling Cape Town city center, Constantia Glen is a picturesque boutique wine estate producing ultra-premium, cool-climate wines. The 150-acre property, situated at an altitude of 425-885 feet above sea level, has a mere 75-acres under vine, with production of Constantia Glen wines limited to 100,000 bottles per year. The undulating foothills of the Constantiaberg command hand-harvesting practices, underpinning the handcrafted quality of the wines. Cold maritime breezes from the Atlantic, directly off False Bay, regulate the annual average temperature at a mild 61ºF. Dryland cultivation under these cool climatic conditions results in slow ripening, low yields with exceptional grape quality, and flavor concentration. This makes for crisp white wines and fresh, vibrant reds of great elegance and structure, setting the district apart from other South African wine-producing areas.
