Klein Constantia wines are produced in one of the worlds most beautiful vineyards. Klein Constantia is set amidst ancient trees and lush greenery on the upper foothills of the Constantiaberg, with superb views across the Constantia Valley and False Bay.
Our 146 Hectare Wine Estate was originally part of Constantia, a vast property established in 1685 by Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Cape. This particular valley was chosen not only for its beauty, but also for the decomposed granite soils on its slopes, gently cooled by ocean breezes situated between the cool Atlantic and warmer Indian Ocean. Prized by leaders and aristocracy throughout 18th Century Europe, Constantias Vin de Constance was revived by Klein Constantia in 1986, reaffirming this unique natural sweet wines place in history.
Today, Klein Constantia continues to make some of South Africas top wines and the worlds best dessert wines; wines that reflect the cool Constantia climate, as well as our historic tradition.
