“Described as one of the world’s 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.”
As of today, Klein Constantia is a 146 hectare wine estate, and still continues to produce some of South Africa’s best wines and the world’s best dessert wine – the iconic naturally sweet, Vin de Constance (we definitely recommend a glass of this upon your visit!)
WFF Conservation Champion
What makes this wine estate unique is that they constantly strive to produce wines of high quality that express elements of elegance, minerality and balance. As a WWF Conservation Champion their vision is aligned with that of the World Wildlife Fund as they aim to unite conservation and agricultural development in a complementary, mutually beneficial manner. They continually strive to produce wines in more environmentally responsible and biodynamic ways. If this isn’t admirable, then we don’t know what is!
Their extensive wine range includes a top quality Estate range, a second label KC range, and their flagship revival of the famous Constantia sweet wine, Vin de Constance. They also produce limited volumes of Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc (a premium single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc), Metis Sauvignon Blanc, Méthode Cap Classique Brut, Riesling, Chardonnay and an Estate Red blend. What we love about the wine tasting offered at Klein Constantia is that they offer 4 different tasting options, all at different price points.
