Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate

As the oldest wine-producing region in the Southern Hemisphere, Constantia’s uninterrupted history of wine making stretches back over 300 years.

Constantia Uitsig is located in what can be described as the “Cradle of winemaking” in the Cape and has a long history, being part of the first wine producing estate in South Africa, dating back to the mid-1600s.

Constantia Uitsig means “Constantia View” and is named this for its unique position in the valley, nestled between the east-facing slopes of Constantiaberg and False Bay, creating endless stretches of beautiful vineyards and mountains that surround the farm.

Its unique position means that its vines benefit from the cool sea breezes, providing natural acidity and brilliant ageing ability, as well as Cape Town’s Mediterranean climate, with its rainy winters and long, dry summers. This position has made for the perfect grape growing conditions, with vines rooted in 200-million-year-old, well composed, well-drained granite with a high clay content, ensuring excellent water retention.
