Constantia Glen, where fine wines and nature meet

Constantia Glen

Steeped in the history of South Africa’s oldest wine producing region, picturesque Constantia Glen is a twenty five minute drive from the Cape Town city centre.

This family owned and run boutique wine estate has been lovingly maintained over several generations, producing award winning, ultra-premium, cool climate wines.

The estate is cradled between Constantia Berg and Table Mountain with the vineyard slopes facing predominantly North East. This location allows for exposure to late afternoon sun which is ideal for long, slow ripening of the grapes.  Cold maritime breezes from the Atlantic ocean regulate the annual average temperature to a mild 16 degrees Celsius.

This makes for crisp white wines and fresh, vibrant reds with great elegance and structure, setting them apart from other South African wine producing areas.

Award Winning Wines

Constantia Glen produces four flagship wines, two white wines and two red blends.

The Constantia Glen Sauvignon blanc is a tank fermented, tank matured Sauvignon blanc that combines bright tropical fruit flavours with impeccable balance and great length.

The Constantia Glen TWO is a classic Constantia white blend of Sauvignon blanc and Semillon. Barrel fermented and matured, this wine combines the fresh and bright Sauvignon blanc with the richness and roundness of the Semillon.

The Constantia Glen THREE is a Merlot driven red blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This fruit forward wine has beautiful elegance with dark fruit flavours and distinct savoury notes.

The flagship red wine, the Constantia Glen FIVE, is a Cabernet driven red blend made up of five red grape varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. This wine has a deep crimson core with rich aromas of ripe blackcurrant, dark plums and fragrant dried herbs

Wine Tasting

Wine enthusiasts visiting Constantia Glen’s tasting room can enjoy several wine tasting options on the estate with all wines on offer to taste.  

Wine Tasting is available from 10am to 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and from 10am to 6pm from Sunday to Thursday.

Wine may be purchased directly from the tasting room or online via the website for delivery to your front door.


Visitors to Constantia Glen can enjoy a relaxed seasonal menu served in any of the tasting room’s dining spaces – The Wine Bar, the outdoor cobble stone area, the Glass house or the veranda, all with exquisite views of the Constantia Valley.

Delicious cheese and charcuterie platters, salads, gourmet mains and decadent desserts are all on the menu, as well as their famous Flammkuchens (thinly rolled flatbread baked in a wood fire oven). 

Constantia Glen is wheel chair accessible and is also available for big events or special celebrations.

Sunday – Thursday: 10am to 6pm

Friday and Saturday: 10am to 9pm

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
