In 1659 Jan Van Riebeeck was able to produce the very first wine on record from South Africa. Van Riebeeck was the first Dutch Governor of Cape Town. Cape Town remains the hub of wine production in South Africa even up to today although there are many other areas that are producing excellent wine. The property of Constantia farm began operations in 1685 by the then-Governor Simon Van Der Stel. He had a good wine label known as Vin de Constance but eventually sold his wine farm to Hendrik Cloete in 1778 and this was the man who built the name Constantia and made it world class, gaining international fame
