Constantia at a glance
Located at the foothills of the beautiful Constantiaberg Mountains the fertile Constantia Valley with its moderate climate and rich soil is home to the oldest wine estates in South Africa.
This is the area that Simon van der Stel, first Governor of the Cape, chose to cultivate and develop in 1685.
Over the years, the original Constantia farm has been divided into a few smaller farms each of which have since forged their own unique heritage and all of which are to this day producing award winning wines.
The Constantia wine route is a mere 20 minutes from the city centre. Today the estate is family owned and run and still produces some of South Africa's most extraordinary wines.
