ABOUT THE CONSTANTIA FRESH FESTIVAL
Over the last 8 years Constantia Fresh festival has become one of the most prestigious outdoor wine event in South Africa. In 2016 we saw over 1200 sip and sample some of the country’s finest wines on offer by 45 exhibitors, whilst 6 of South Africa’s top chefs prepared food to accompany the wines. The festival offers a refreshing change to the many wine events held in crowded halls and is tailor-made to ensure that guests not only enjoy the day, but that each leaves feeling invigorated and filled with a lust for life.
Setting Constantia Fresh apart from other festivals, is its focus on “freshness” – a vital part of food, wine and life.
Great food has to be prepared with fresh ingredients, and life that is not continually renewed with fresh ideas and experiences is a life that soon becomes mundane. The Constantia Fresh festival celebrates all that is fresh. Set in the heart of Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine region, the festival showcases the finest local and international wines with the freshest and most creative food our local chefs can offer.
A jamboree of flavour and set in the peaceful and uncluttered grounds of Buitenverwachting, the day is one of relaxation and a taste sensation which will leave body, mind and spirit invigorated. The country’s freshest wines are grouped together stylistically so as to allow visitors to better experience the wide range of vinous flavours whilst local chefs serve fresh and vibrant food to accompany the wines.
Coffee and local craft beer are also on offer throughout the day, whilst live music will entertain and soothe the soul.
