In South Africa, a huge fire raged in early March that struck the vineyards of Constantia, among others. Fortunately, many had already harvested some of their grapes. It seems that the damage in the vineyards, after all, is rather limited after great efforts by both fire-fighters and volunteers.
Constantia is situated on the Cape Peninsula, not far from Cape Town. Here we find fabulous wineries like Buitenverwachting, Steenberg and High Constantia and of course the classic Groot Constantia and Klein Constantia. The latter is famous for its sweet Muscat wine Vin de Constance.
