Klein Constantia Estate in Constantia, Cape Town, South Africa | Wine | Winery | Wine co-operative
Klein Constantia Estate lies on the narrow Cape Peninsula which projects southwards into the southern Atlantic ocean, where exposure to maritime and mountain influences are ideal for quality Wine production in the Western Cape of South Africa.
Situated only 20 kilometres from Cape Town's city centre, the estate is set amid trees and lush greenery on the slopes of the Constantia mountain.
With superb views across the Constantia valley and over False Bay, it has frequently been described as one of the world's most beautiful vineyard locations.
Home to the family, the gabled Cape Dutch homestead dating back to 1824 graces the 146 hectare estate.
As the only Winery in the Cape to have won a merit award from the South African Institute of Architects, who rated it "a sensitive adornment to an important historical estate?, the new cellar was partially sunk below ground to minimise the external visual impact.
The verdant Constantia valley, home to Klein Constantia Estate in the Western Cape, is the oldest, most enduring vineyard region in the Cape, first producing Wine in 1689.
As part of the original vineyard that in the 18th century produced "Constantia", prized throughout Europe by the leaders and aristocracy of the time, Klein Constantia has helped to reclaim its former glory by initiating the revival of this famous sweet Wine.
Family owned and run, Klein Constantia's philosophy is founded on quality rather than quantity, reflected in the Wines regularly inviting accolades, both locally and internationally.
