Beau Constantia Winery

The Winery Beau Constantia is situated on the hills of the mountain pass Constantia Nek, overlooking False Bay. The special feature of this location is the short distance to the sea, and thus the associated cooling of the vines by the fresh sea breeze. Due to the very high altitude of the vineyards, which are located 350 m above sea level on the Constantia mountain range, only 3-6 tons of wine per hectare are harvested by hand.

The very steep slopes of the vineyard enable the production of highly concentrated wines. This combination shapes the strong heritage character of Beau Constantia 's award-winning portfolio.

Winemaker: Megan van der Merwe

Megan van der Merwe is the youngest winemaker in the Constantia Valley. Besides the development of the wines, above anything, her heart beats for nature. For this reason, Megan believes that one should interfere as little as possible in the processes that take place from the vine to the wine. That is why Megan spends most of her time on site in the vineyards.

Megan van der Merwe began her career by studying viticulture and oenology at the university of Stellenbosch. Shortly after graduating in 2014, she started as an assistant Winemaker at Constantia Glen. There, she had her first contact with the wines of Beau Constantia. In the following years, she spent a lot of time chasing the sun around the world. In 2017, for example, she worked in Paso Robles in California and in 2018 in the Rhône Valley in the Chateauneuf du Pape region. Nevertheless, Megan travelled back to South Africa every year during the South African harvest so as not to miss the vintage at Constantia Glen.

As someone who loves to learn and grow, Megan was immediately ready to take over the reins at Beau Constantia. In 2019, her success story at Beau Constantia began with her first harvest of her own.
