The legendary wine of Constantia has a history dating back to 1659, when South Africa served as a convenient stopping off point for ships on the spice route. European sailors planted vineyards, to refill their barrels with wine in preparation for many months more at sea. But being dominated by co-operatives with strict rules, the industry languished for some time; and it’s not long ago that more grapes produced in South Africa found their way into brandy than into wine.

But things have changed, and a new generation of winemakers, with new ideals, new energy - and a good deal of investment - have worked tirelessly to make South Africa one of the world’s most exciting wine producers today. Join us to taste through a selection of our favourite wines from this fantastic country.
