During my time in the Mother City (Cape Town), Constantia Glen was one of the wine farms which I probably visited at least 3 times. This wine farm boasts a beautiful view, great wine and its situated nature just less than 20 minutes outside of Cape Town city center, gives you more reason to comeback if you reside in the Southern Suburbs or along the Atlantic Sea board.
ABOUT CONTANTIA GLEN
The Constantia wine region is one of South Africa’s oldest wine producing regions. Constantia Glen offers local and international visitors a wine tasting experience out of this world. Wine tasting while enjoying the exotic views from the tasting room and the vineyards is something to look forward to at this wine farm.
The best thing about this wine farm is the operational times. It opens from 10am until 6pm on Sunday to Thursday and 10am until 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays. These times are suitable for spontaneous people like myself. I have had impromptu visits at this wine farm at 5pm on a Saturday, which is when most wine farms close, but this is why I gel with the Glen.
The wine tasting options are reasonably priced. You can can expect to pay R55 to R90 per person (subject to changes due to inflation) for wine tasting and this depends on your selection. You can choose between the Classic Tasting which costs about R55 and includes five wines. Or you can also choose the Premium Tasting at R80 with seven wines including flagship wines. If you would like to splurge, there are other options on the menu for more variety of wine, but always drink with care.
