The Constantia Crush

Constantia CrushThe Constantia Crush aims to bring wine farms from all over the province to your neighbourhood in a family focused festival.

On the 13th February 2016 they invite you to crush, sip and swirl over 100 beautiful wines from 25 spectacular wineries from across the Western Cape.

Whether you a wine connoisseur, a Sauvingnon Blanc sipping soccer mum, a cash strapped box wine fundi or tantrum throwing toddler this is the wine festival for you.

Bring your children along, they will be looked after and entertained while you taste through the wonders of the winelands in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

We have all your needs catered for; Craft beers for the non wine drinking partners in crime, plenty of food options to satisfy all appetites young or old, we even have free parking available for your designated driver.

Then once you’ve finished tasting, and ready to start drinking, all wines will be on sale at cellar door prices. So buy that bottle of your favorite new discovery, chill on the grass and enjoy the live music in the glorious Constantia sunshine.

Before you go don’t forget to stock up your wine rack at home and the one your friends don’t know about in your garage.
