Klein Constantia, Constantia

4.2
#10 of 31 in Wineries in Cape Town
Visit Klein Constantia, a vineyard and winery with an enviable location and interesting history. First established here in 1685 because of the quality of the soil and the cool ocean breezes, the winery produced a naturally sweet Vin de Constance, which became popular with writers, rulers, and the aristocracy during the 18th and 19th centuries--until a wine blight devastated the vineyards. Reopened in 1986, the facility offers tours of the facilities, tastings and pairing sessions, and an onsite store where you can pick up a bottle or two to take home with you.

  • Having visited many wine making estates I rate Klein Constantia on top of them. We spent very nice time there and managed to get new knowledge about the wines. Lovely scenery for photographers.  more »
  • KC is a majestic estate with an illustrious history in a beautiful setting. Explore the grounds before (or after) sampling wines in the tasting room. The range on offer is wide and staff are pleasant ...  more »
  • We did not visit vineyards and Winery for lack of time or could stay for lunch but we saw the restaurant and the map and it is an idyllic place for lunch quiet and shade. We on the other hand did a white wine tasting and was very interesting. The grape varieties such as we knew them by name in France do not have lots of similarities with those at the bottom who have fragrances of tropical fruits. All are not excellent but discovered the pinotage is interesting without being our favorite. The tasting merit moving if only to see the buildings white Cape Dutch style in the middle of the vineyards and not surrounded by Table Mountain.
