“Acquire” sells Klein Constantia Wine Farm

“Acquire” sells Klein Constantia Wine Farm

The Jooste family, who have owned Klein Constantia since 1980, have sold Klein Constantia to US citizen Zdenĕk Bakala and Charles Harman from the UK.

Both have been regular visitors to South Africa for the past twenty years, and together with their families now divide their time between their respective homes in Europe and Cape Town. They know the Cape Peninsula especially well – as participants for many years in the Cape Argus cycle race and as devotees of the wines produced in the Constantia Valley.

They are enthusiastic about furthering the development of Klein Constantia as one of South Africa’s top wineries. They are equally focused on preserving  the property in its entirety, a commitment the  Jooste family was at great pains to secure in a potential buyer.

“We are privileged to be custodians of one of the most historic properties in the Cape, and regard the preservation of this heritage as a serious responsibility.” assures Bakala.  Lowell Jooste will be continuing in his role as Managing Director of Klein Constantia. There are no changes planned to the team or operations at Klein Constantia.
