If you are wanting a luxurious, full-on Capetonian wine-tasting experience, then this is the place for you! Beau Constantia is a boutique wine farm located at the top of Constantia Nek with panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Helderberg Mountain and ranges over False Bay as far as Hangklip.
In 2000, the fynbos and pine forests on the property were destroyed by a distressing fire – the slopes were then cleared, exposing a great opportunity for the planting of vineyards! The first vineyards were planted in 2003 and cultivated varieties including Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Shiraz and Petit Verdot. Two premium red blends have just been released under the bespoke Beau Constantia label – namely Lucca and Aidan. Which are hand-crafted to its own unique style by winemaker, Justin van Wyk. Definitely worth trying!
