Winter does not have to be miserable

As you must know by now, one of my favourite places to escape to is Constantia, and one of my favourite places there is Constantia Glen. As we ease into a wonderful Cape winter with the promise of an abundant summer, the folk there are out to entice us with very good offers to eat and drink in their cosy Tasting Room. There’s a special winter offering sure to suit just about any mood.

 

Classic Caprese flammkuchen

On Mondays and Tuesdays, tuck into Constantia Glen’s iconic wood-fired Flammkuchen (flatbread) for half the usual price and enjoy a complimentary Flagship wine tasting with any main meal or signature platter.

Man size hamburger

Wednesdays and Thursdays The offer is a complimentary glass of wine with every main meal or platter. Enjoy these hearty dishes next to a roaring fire in the cosy glass house surrounded by stunning winter vineyard views or in the warm winter sun in the outdoor cobblestone or fountain seating areas.

Start your weekend on a sweet note with the mouth-watering Friday special of a complimentary dessert with your order of any two main meals. Try any one of the delicious dessert options such as an indulgent chocolate fondant topped with a cherry coulis, served with homemade crème frâiche ice cream or a classic Don Pedro made with vanilla ice cream.

Catch the vibe during Friday Happy Hour between 17h00 and 19h00 with Constantia Glen’s fabulous 2-for-1 deal on all wines by the glass or bottle for sit down only.
