What a setting!

Is it my imagination or has this year been a particularly cold and wet winter? I cannot think of a better way to welcome spring than with Constantia Glen’s cool climate wines and delicious food at their spectacular setting. .

They are pulling out all the stops for Heritage Day with live music and an all-South African braai platter available on Friday, 24 September. Can’t wait to Indulge in a generous platter for two of tasty lamb spit braai, boerewors, braaibroodjie, pap poppers with peppadew & cheese, chakalaka, mixed salad and olives—good value at  R360. To be there make a reservation to via the ‘book now function’ on the Constanta Glen website http://www.constantiaglen.com.

Who can resist that?


This generous platter pairs beautifully with the estate’s flagship reds, Constantia Glen THREE 2017 and FIVE 2018. Both reds are elegant expressions of the Bordeaux varieties grown on the upper reaches of the Constantiaberg.

I for one cannot wait!

The popular selection of delicious cheese and charcuterie platters, Mediterranean salad or their proudly South African biltong and droëwors – perfect pre-braai morsels – will also be available on Heritage Day. Live music will be weather dependent so follow @ConstantiaGlen on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates on who will be performing.
