Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Constantia, in Western Cape

Beau Constantia is a boutique winery just off the crest of Constantia Nek, with views out over False Bay. These are some of the steepest wine slopes in the Cape, 350 metres above sea-level up on the Constantia Mountains.

The modern wine farm is relatively new, purchased by Pierre and Cecily Du Preez in 2002, after fires destroyed the fynbos and pine forests on the property in 2000. Together with their farm manager, Japie Bronn, they planted vineyards over 11.47 hectares of the farm.

Beau Constantia's debut wine Cecily Viognier won an award for the best Viognier at the 2011 Novare Terroir Wine Awards.

The winery has two white blends – Pierre (only 2500 bottles of this Sauvignon blanc, Semillon blend were produced for the latest vintage from grapes grown right on the top of the slopes) and Cecily (only 2000 bottles of the most recent vintage), Lucca, a Bordeaux-style blend of Merlot and Cabernet France (4900 bottles), Aidan (the first vintage to include some Shiraz) and Stella (a very small selection of two of the very best barrels of Shiraz).

The winery also recently introduced a new range of wines, called Pas De Nom, a second-tier white and red blend.

Until May 2016 the wine bar at Beau Constantia drew the crowds with a pop-up SushiBOX shop. A recent announcement by the farm will see former Test Kitchen Head Chef, Ivor Jones, team up with Liam Tomlin to open a second outpost of Chefs Warehouse at Beau Constantia.

The idea is for tapas-style eating (lunches and early dinners) on the large deck for al fresco dining. And the chef has been granted a hectare of land to plant his own fresh produce for use in the menu.

And the good news: this Chefs Warehouse will take bookings, but will keep a section for walk-ins. They're also available for private dinners and functions.

Visit for the views, the wines, and soon, the food.
