Constantia, the first wine farm in Southern Africa, was established in 1685 and was used to produce wine as well as other fruit and vegetables and cattle farming.
It was under the Cloete family ownership that Constantia's sweet dessert wine made primarily from vine-dried Muscat de Frontignan grapes reached the height of its fame.
Klein Constantia is custodian to some of the most historic vineyards in South Africa and, indeed, the world.
The unique location, climate and soils of our estate call for the making of terroir-driven wines, and it is to this principle that we are deeply committed.
Simple winemaking techniques are used to extract the best from grapes grown in expertly nurtured vineyards in the aim of making consistently excellent wines.
Klein Constantia is noted particularly for its production of high-quality white wines, and is world-renowned for its revival of the famous 18th and 19th century Constantia dessert wine, known today as Vin de Constance. Today, Vin de Constance consistently scores over 90 points in Wine Spectator Magazine and other rating publications like Robert Parker.
