Constantia Uitsig, known until 1940 as Constantia View, was the home of the Lategan family for five generations. Their ancestors arrived in this country in 1735.
Constantia Uitsig had been a portion of Simon van der Stel’s original grant of Groot Constantia. In 1894 Willem Lategan married Antoinette Bredell of Schoemanshoek, and with her inheritance he built the present homestead of Constantia Uitsig.
Truly one of South Africa’s Iconic Luxury Wine Estates.
Just 20 minutes from the heart of the city, Constantia Uitsig is truly Cape Town’s own Vineyard. The breath-taking rural beauty of a valley, where vineyard rows stretch up the mountainside, is unique in today’s overcrowded world.
Award Winning Wines
“Constantia Uitsig can be so proud of its wines – what a great thing it is to produce a range of wines like yours and for it to be so difficult to decide which one is best.” Michael Olivier 2007
In the spirit of collaboration with its neighbouring wine farms, Constantia Uitsig has embraced the distinct, embossed ‘1685 Constantia South Africa’ wine bottle.
All Constantia Uitsig white wines are screw capped, whilst the red is bottled in natural cork. Constantia Uitsig was one of South Africa’s screw cap closure pioneers, implementing the select use of screw cap as early as 2003.
Constantia Uitsig produces Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Red and White Bordeaux blends- all noble cultivars ideally suited to the climate in the valley.

”There is a little corner of Constantia Uitsig where they play cricket..."

About The Constantia Valley
The Constantia Valley comprises some of the most valuable land throughout Africa. The Constantia valley is the cradle of quality wine-making in South Africa. Constantia is linked with the most famous wines ever produced in South Africa. For over two centuries the wines of the valley were sought-after by royal courts and the aristocracy of Europe. Napoleon Bonaparte who was imprisoned by the British on the remote Atlantic island of St Helena, loved the sweet wines of the Constantia valley.
Nature provides the valley with ideal conditions for growing wine grapes… long days of sunlight, cool ocean breezes… plentiful winter rain… and varied soil types…
Constantia Uitsig is one of the 8 wine farms in the Constantia Valley. They are all big in quality and rich in a unique terroir and boast a wine-making history dating back to 1685.
