Top Cape Wine Farm Up For Sale

Cape Town – The Constantia Uitsig wine estate, in which businessman Tokyo Sexwale has a stake, is up for sale, the Sunday Times reported.

“We decided it’s better to sell and concentrate on our agricultural investment in which we are operationally involved,” Piet Niemand, who is agricultural portfolio manager at Sexwale’s Mvelephanda Holdings, reportedly told the newspaper.

The estate was also reportedly owned by a company run by former merchant banker Dave McCay.

According to the newspaper, Constantia Uitsig chairman Lawrie McIntosh said the decision to sell was based on McCay and his wife wanting a more restful life after his kidney transplant last year.

“It is exhausting to run an estate this size,” McIntosh was quoted as telling the newspaper.

New vines were planted at the estate in 1988. There are also reportedly acclaimed restaurants, a boutique hotel, a spa, stables and a cricket pitch on the property. – Sapa

One of South Africa’s Iconic Luxury Wine Estates

Constantia Uitsig is a luxury Wine Estate with Award Winning Wines, 3 World-Renowned Restaurants, a 16-roomed Luxury Hotel, Spa, Private Cricket Oval, Wine Shop, Stables and is highly sought after as an Events location.

Set on 60.5 hectares of some of the most valuable land throughout Africa.

A truly unique opportunity to acquire one of South Africa’s iconic Wine Estates.

Luxury Wine Estate with Hotel, Spa, Restaurants & Cricket Oval Constantia Uitsig boasts Award Winning Wines, 3 World-Renowned Restaurants, a 16-roomed Luxury Hotel, Spa, Private Cricket Oval, Wine Shop, Stables and Events.

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.

La Colombe Restaurant

La Colombe, one of Cape Town’s most well-loved and awarded restaurants, achieved an impressive 12th place in the San Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurants of the World Awards 2010. La Colombe has also achieved the highest three star rating in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 issue of the acclaimed Rossouw’s Restaurants guide.

Constantia Uitsig Restaurant

Constantia Uitsig Restaurant is housed in the original Cape Dutch Homestead, offering breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. Under the expert hand of Head Chef Clayton Bell, it has earned international reputation for a stylish, yet relaxed atmosphere and offers widely varied Mediterranean Provencal Cuisine. Since its inception in 1992, Constantia Uitsig Restaurant has consistently featured amongst the top restaurants in South Africa.

River Café Restaurant

River Café has long been a popular social haunt in the Constantia Valley, revered for its sumptuous breakfasts, assortment of freshly baked pastries, cakes and muffins complimented by a café style menu. Two separate indoor dining areas, The Tea Room and The Red Room, extend outwards to a lush, sunny courtyard for laid back alfresco style dining. Using local ingredients and wines sourced from the Constantia Valley, River Café provides the perfect setting for leisurely breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas.

Constantia Uitsig Hotel

The Constantia Uitsig Hotel is a 16-roomed luxury Hotel set amongst the vineyards in the shadow of Cape Town’s Table Mountain and is located just twenty minutes from Cape Town city centre & the V&A Waterfront.

Constantia Uitsig’s tranquil surroundings, charming service and heartfelt hospitality are enhanced by its splendid location on a working wine estate. The hotel has 16 garden rooms furnished with elegant simplicity and sweeping views of the gardens – a perfect resting place for the most discerning traveller.

Constantia Uitsig Spa

In 2007, the Constantia Uitsig Spa opened and contains 6 multipurpose treatment rooms offering clients the tranquil sound of running water, the presence of grand old trees and constantly changing vistas of mountain and vineyards set in the shadow of Table Mountain. The Spa has been featured in Tatlers Guide to the Top Spas in the World 2007. It is the only Spa in South Africa to offer ‘Les Aromes du Vin’, a body treatment based on the aromatic components of fine wines.

Private Cricket Oval

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

The Private Cricket Oval is set amongst the Constantiaberg and several hectares of lush vineyards which define the boundaries, the private cricket oval leaves long-lasting memories. Offering a world class location for serious team building, functions, corporate entertainment and a truly dream wedding location (to include a pre or post-wedding cricket match). Retrieving a six may involve something of a grapple with a grape.

The Wine Shop

Situated at the entrance to the Estate, The Wine Shop offers tastings of the Constantia Uitsig Wines 7 days a week. Formal educational wine-tastings are available and expert staff are on hand offering advice on food and wine pairing or the history of the Estate. The Wine Shop also stocks premium brandies, a selection of fine olive oils, kikoys from Tanzania, wine accessories and books about the Cape’s magnificent Winelands.

Stables

The estate currently stables approximately 35 horses for fee paying private owners and third parties. Riders are able to make use of the plethora of available outriding in the neighbouring greenbelts, green surrounding areas and the local forest areas.

Events

There are few places in the world more sought after and desirable to celebrate special occasions than The Constantia Uitsig Estate. Constantia Uitsig is set on over 60 hectares of some of the most valuable land throughout Africa.

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.
