The Klein Constantia Dinner, with Hans Astrom
Four Courses Dinner at £89.50pp
Aperitif from 19h00
Sit down 19h30
In 1685, in the South African Dutch settlement, Simon van der Stel, the Cape Governor, established an estate in an area very close to the coast and named it Constantia. The sweet wine from the estate became in great demand in many high places. Both Wellington and Napoleon were apparently very keen fans of the wine.
However, in the second part of 19th century the estate experienced serious difficulties resulting in the ‘Vin de Constance’ ceasing to be produced.
Much later in 1980, Duggie Jooste bought Klein Constantia and redeveloped the wine estate and, aside from producing white and red wines, he worked on the idea to recreate the famous dessert wine. The first vintage released was 1986 and the wine has gained great acclaim with top wine critics, (95pts by the Wine Advocate for the 2008 vintage).
Tonight, Hans Astrom, the highly talented Managing Director of Klein Constantia will be on hand to present the wines of Klein Constantia. Of course some ‘Vin de Constance’ will be served with the dessert.
