Constantia Uitsig

Constantia Valley Wine Estate, home to a cosy Wine Shop, Open Door restaurant and an awesome bike park.

Constantia’s history dates back to 1685, when Simon van der Stel named his property after the daughter of the benefactor who granted him a farm nestled beneath a picturesque mountain range. The lush setting and moderate temperatures bode well for farming and van der Stel set to work planting orchards and vineyards.

Constantia is thus the oldest wine-producing region in the Southern Hemisphere – with an uninterrupted history of wine making that spans over 300 years.

Having subsequently been subdivided into smaller farms, Constantia Uitsig is now one of a select handful of wine estates that together make up the Constantia Valley Wine Route.

Once the setting for some of the Cape’s most loved and respected restaurants, as well as a popular Hotel and Spa, Constantia Uitsig is now home to a brand new restaurant in the old River Café premises (called Open Door), a new Wine Shop and a Bike Park for cycling enthusiasts.
