Old World Charm and New World Style

Historic Cape Dutch Constantia wine farms restored and renovated for modern-day appeal.

Their elegant, fruit-rich wines come from grapes grown on hillside vineyards with views over the cold Atlantic Ocean, providing the ideal cool, maritime climate for exceptional quality. 

But, whereas gracious Constantia is the historical heart of winemaking in the Cape, bottling world-renowned wines since the mid-18th century, Durbanville is the relatively new kid on the block.

Vines have long been part of this rural community's farming activities, but it's only in modern times that its hospitable vintners have thrown open their cellar doors to visitors.
