Perched on the slopes of the historic Constantia hills, Eagles Nest has made the most of spectacular terrior overlooking the expansive Cape Flats and Indian Ocean since 1836. Thought to have been named after a pair of breeding Verreaux’s Eagles, typically known for their black appearance and for living in the crags of the Table Mountain range, eagle conservation is a main priority at this wine estate. Eagles Nest wine has an unbelievably long list of prestigious awards for their spectacular wines such as the Shiraz that features a series of silver and gold medals across their 2006 to 2010 vintages. The medium-bodied Merlot shares in Eagle Nest’s ubiquitous awards including bronze, silver, and gold medals across their vintages including a double gold from Veritas for the 2009 vintage. Their wonderful white wine, the Eagles Nest Viognier, is possibly the most impressive of all, including multiple medals such as the double gold medal awarded by the Six Nations Wine Challenge for the 2012 vintage.
