Imagine it is a beautiful summer’s day, you have taken some time out and you find yourself  sitting down to lunch in the beautiful Constantia wine valley, knowing that you are in the heart of the a wine region.  Its lunchtime, and you really don’t feel like a whole bottle of wine, you’d just like a glass or two.  As you are in a wine region, you really would like to try some of the local wines or champagnes, even though you don’t know them – a glass of one of thesebubble glass wines would be just perfect!  So where do you think you would be able to have access to this wide selection of wines and champagnes to choose from and be able to select the one/s that you would like to try by the glass?

And that place would be at Tashas Constantia, right in the heart of the wine valley in Constantia.  With it cosmopolitan feel and its broad selection of wines and champagne, you couldn’t ask for a better place to get a taste of what the region has to offer – all by the glass!

I was recently chatting to Craig, the owner of Tashas Constantia, and he told me that he is able to offer this experience because of the Le Verre de Vin system that he has, which preserves any opened bottle of wine or champagne for 21 days – and keeps it as fresh as the day it was opened.

What Tashas Constantia do, is offer virtually their full range of wine by the glass, confident in the knowledge that Le Verre de Vin will keep any opened bottle fresh.  Tashas serve their wine in these beautiful balloon glasses, which allow them to give a generous portion when serving their wine by the glass – it really feels like you are indulging yourself in a special experience when you savour one of the quality wines that Tashas offer .

Craig also told me that because he has Le Verre de Vin – it allows him to support  the local winemakers, even if their wines are lesser known.  This means that his customers are able to get a taste for what is on offer from the valley and in this way to get to know the local wines without having to buy a full bottle.  As a matter of fact, most of Tasha Constania’s wine sales are wine by the glass.  Craig also said that if he didn’t have his Le Verre de Vin wine preservation system, he would only be able to afford to offer a couple of wines by the glass.  And even more so, he would probably not be able to offer any champagne by the glass.  This would not be good for his business!

So get yourself off to Tashas in Constantia and have yourself a wonderful eating out experience, pairing your wine as you choose, knowing that you can have any wine you want by the glass and don’t have to have the whole bottle!  Quite honestly, I don’t understand why every restaurant doesn’t have a Le Verre de Vin wine preservation system – it just makes sense – you can only win with it!!
