Constantia Uitsig originally formed a part of the first wine estate established in South Africa in the seventeenth century known as Constantia. This large piece of land, located on back side of Table Mountain, belonged to Simon van der Stel who was the governour of the Cape at the time. The land was granted to Simon van der Stel in 1683 by the Dutch East India Company for his services rendered. Shortly after receiving the grant various crops were cultivated on the land in order supply refreshments to ships sailing to and from India.

Given the cool climate of the area and the affinity of certain grape varieties towards such growing conditions, Simon van der Stel turned to the establishment of vines for the production of wine. An avenue of oak trees planted in 1685 stands to this day. The oak trees were originally intended for the production of wine barrels, but were deemed unfit for production due to climatic conditions causing the trees to grow too rapidly. Constantia was sold in 1716 following the death of Simon van der Stel and subsequently divided in to the wine farms known today as Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Buitenverwachting, Constantia Uitsig and Steenberg.

The cool mircoclimate prevailing between Hout Bay and Table Mountain, coupled with the intense South African sun, delivers exceptional and complex wines. Wines produced exclusively from grapes grown in the Constantia ward are bottled in a unique bottle, beautifully embossed with the Constantia logo, so as to indicate true wines of origin. All the wines of Constantia Uitsig are embossed with this logo.

Constantia Uitsig was purchased in 1988 by David and Marene McCay who restored the original beauty of the farm. Constantia Uitsig became home to 3 internationally acclaimed restaurants, a 16 room luxury boutique hotel, a beauty spa and cricket oval.

The wines of Constantia Uitsig are renowned for their consistent, high quality and long ageing ability. Since 2002, most of the wines of Constantia Uitsig have been awarded with 4 stars or more out of a possible 5 star rating by the respected South African John Platter Wine Guide.

Constantia Uitsig is a mere 20 minute drive from Cape Town city and is known as Cape Town’s own vineyard and destination of choice. The majority of Constantia Uitsig wines produced are sold locally at the farm through the Wine Shop at Constantia Uitsig.

Towards the end of 2013 Constantia Uitsig was sold to South African investor Mr Pieter Erasmus. His sole focus is to set on the production of high quality wines with all hospitality driven aspects of the business being closed. The world famous restaurant, La Colombe, will continue trading elsewhere off the farm.
