Heritage

Constantia’s history dates back to 1685 when Governor Simon van der Stel named his property Constantia after the daughter of his benefactor Commissioner van Rheede who granted him a farm here. Governor van der Stel planted orchards and vineyards on the farm thus making Constantia the oldest wine producing region in the Southern Hemisphere with an uninterrupted history of wine making.
