Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate

In 1685, Simon van der Stel was quick to recognize the untapped potential of the decomposed granite and sandstone soils in this serene valley facing False Bay, hugged by the sea on both sides. It was here that he planted the very first vines in Southern Africa, laying the foundation for centuries of exceptional winemaking.

Nestled beneath the majestic slopes of Table Mountain, Constantia Uitsig benefits from the unique marriage of crisp Atlantic ocean breezes and a gentle, temperate climate. These elements have conspired to produce consistently outstanding wines for over three hundred years.

Situated as the lowest lying farm in the valley, our rich and fertile soils are perfectly suited for cultivating world-class white wines such as Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. These ideal growing conditions, coupled with our meticulous vineyard management, result in wines of unparalleled quality.

Our vineyards experience a gradual transition to summer, followed by a mild, sun-kissed season, complemented by refreshing Atlantic breezes that cool and dry the vineyards.

At Constantia Uitsig, we strive to work in harmony with nature, employing sustainable practices such as cover cropping, mulching, and integrated pest management programs. Our commitment to biodiversity is evident in the vibrant flowers that dot our vineyards, attracting beneficial insects and enriching the soil with our farm-made compost.
