Constantia Glen has a unique position cradled between the Constantiaberg and Table Mountain (World Heritage Site) ranges, with predominantly north-east facing slopes. This singular location allows for exposure to late afternoon sun. Known for exceptional cool climate Bordeaux-style, Constantia Glen’s dryland vineyards are farmed without any irrigation.
High water retention of the rich clay sub-soils allows for sustainable dryland cultivation, while ecologically sound practices include biological insect and pest control by means of natural predators.
Decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone are the dominant soil types that lend minerality.
