Discover Elegance in Elevation: Savor the Heights of Constantiaberg's Vineyards, Where Ocean Breezes Meet Mountain Majesty


Last updated: April 10, 2024


The name Constantia is today synonymous with luxury in South Africa; situated to the south of Cape Town, it has become one of the area’s wealthiest suburbs, complete with many fine boutique hotels, shops, and superlative restaurants. Yet, many visitors may fail to discover that Constantia actually saw witness to the first commercial vineyard in South Africa. The nation’s first wine estate was founded in 1685 by the Cape’s second governor, Simon van der Stel. It gradually grew in reputation as one of the world’s greatest dessert wines, produced from an extensive vineyard of over 1,800 hectares.
