The land, buildings, infrastructure and operating business of Constantia Uitsig wine estate are currently for sale. Comprising two erven, both zoned rural, with consent use to operate restaurants and a hotel, the estate measures a total of 60 hectares, 33 of which are farmed to produce Hanepoot table grapes and Constantia Uitsig wines, which currently achieve 4 stars or more in the Platter’s Wine Guide.
Dating back to the 17th century, Constantia Uitsig is the youngest of the Constantia Valley’s historic wine farms. Having fallen into disrepair, it was restored to its former glory in 1988 by David and Marlene McCay, who were instrumental in the reintroduction of its vines and the establishment of three restaurants and a hotel. In April 2005, the property was acquired by a newly formed company, Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate (Pty) Limited, and the operational assets by Constantia Uitsig Holdings (Pty) Limited.
Current operations include the award winning La Colombe restaurant, the legendary Uitsig Restaurant, The River Café@Constantia Uitsig, The Constantia Uitsig Country Hotel, Constantia Uitsig Spa, Wine Shop, Cricket Oval and stables.
Greeff Properties, an exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate have a mandate to sell the historic wine estate. “This is a prime opportunity to own one of the Cape’s most important pieces of land for reasons of heritage and agricultural significance as well as conservation, which is particularly prized in the Constantia Valley,” says Greeff Properties CEO, Mike Greeff.
