‘Constantia Fresh’ is one of the first South African wine festivals to feature the Constantia Valley and participating regional and international producers for a two day lifestyle festival celebrating the freshness of the ‘wild white’ grape, Sauvignon Blanc.

 

This festivities, organised by Jörg Pfützner of Fine Wine Events, aim to celebrate and showcase the grape variety and its suitability to food  as well as discovering where South Africa stands in the international context of Sauvignon Blanc.

 

Groot Constantia will host the Red Wine Tasting of which the objective is to showcase the freshness of Constantia Red Wines in an international arena. The tasting will also demonstrate that the wines of this region are fresh and not green. The line up of wines will feature Classic Bordeaux vintages 2001, 2002 and 2004 and local Bordeaux blends. To provide the context there will be a line up of Australian Shiraz, Classic Vintage Bordeaux (2001 & 2003), some Napa Valley fruit-driven wines and and Hermitages.
