Klein Constantia is a stunningly beautiful estate with fantastic views across False Bay in South Africa. It is the perfect location for cool climate wine. When it was purchased in 1980 by Duggie Jooste it was dilapidated. Now they are again making excellent Vin De Constance, a wine once prized by the royal courts of Europe and sent in bulk to Napoleon's island exile on St. Helena.
