Klein Constantia is custodian to some of the most historic vineyards in South Africa and, indeed, the world. The unique location, climate and soils of our estate call for the making of terroir-driven wines, and it is to this principle that we are deeply committed.
Simple winemaking techniques are used to extract the best from grapes grown in expertly nurtured vineyards in the aim of making consistently excellent wines.
"160 hectares of estate-owned vineyards, 4 wineries, 17 wines, 150 employees across the vineyards, winery and office. It has always been the region and the people that guide us: promoting the wines and unique characteristics of the Langhe, defending the soil and the terroir, and involving the people we work with are among the fundamental principles of our family business."
"We believe in the land hundred percent, the winery is obviously important, but great wines are made with great grapes".
