Klein Constantia

Klein Constantia

Klein Constantia

  • South Africa
Klein Constantia's 146 hectare estate originally formed 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.

Prized by leaders and aristocracy throughout 18th Century Europe, Constantia's Vin de Constance was revived by Klein Constantia in 1986, reaffirming this unique natural sweet wine's place in history. Today, Klein Constantia continues to make some of South Africa's top wines; wines that reflect the cool Constantia climate, as well as its historic tradition. Their Vin de Constance is no stranger to the spotlight, as a frequent feature on the Platter's Wine Guide 5-star winners list, and was named 'Dessert Wine of the Year Unfortified' in 2018's guide.
