I can't support this winery and neither should anyone else. They applied for hunting licenses to kill the baboons in the area. I'd rather support other wine farms which are just as iconic but who have actual respect for nature.

Having visited many wine making estates I rate Klein Constantia on top of them. We spent very nice time there and managed to get new knowledge about the wines. Lovely scenery for photographers.

KC is a majestic estate with an illustrious history in a beautiful setting. Explore the grounds before (or after) sampling wines in the tasting room. The range on offer is wide and staff are pleasant and informative.

Beautiful grounds, and nice lay out of the vineyards clearly marked, which grapes are where. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and explained not only the wines, but the grapes, history as well as wine makers background as well.

Had been twice to this wonderful winery next to Buitenverwachting winery. It offers fantastic wines and has very kind stuff. We had a wine tasting there and went a little bit shopping in their cute shop.

The home of Vin Constantia, Napoleon's favorite dessert wine, this is one of the premier wine estates of the country. Taste an assortment of premium wines, visit the wine craft and olive oil shop, or have a bite to eat. A pleasant excursion.
