The recorking of the Grand Constance 1821

South Africa’s proud wine heritage was recently highlighted when one of our most celebrated wines was recorked to prolong its already venerable lifespan of 198 years. At such an age, the Grand Constance 1821 dessert wine stands amongst some of the Old-World stalwarts and demonstrates South Africa’s comparable winemaking, even 198 years ago.

The certified process was conducted by Libertas Vineyards and Estates in association with the world’s leading cork producer, Amorim Cork. Both Libertas and Amorim wanted to focus their attention on safeguarding the Cape Winelands’ proud legacy of fine winemaking for future generations. A legacy at the very core of the Cape Fine & Rare Wine Auction to be held on the 18 and 19 October in Stellenbosch this year, and where wine investors can bid on collectable vintages of Klein Constantia’s Vin de Constance.
