Groot Constantia Estate



Groot Constantia produces a range of wines, excelling in reds and whites. The estate has consistently won numerous awards for its wines. Today visitors to the estate are welcomed by the tranquil beauty, and a visit here will be unforgettable.

Groot Constantia Estate is where the roots of the South African wine industry lie – the oldest wine farm in the New World wine industry. In 1685 Simon van der Stel was granted the land 891 Morgen (about 2461 ha), situated behind Table Mountain for its wine growing potential and magnificent scenery. He named his farm “Constantia”. Uncertain but theories abound derived from Latin, means constancy or steadfastness and these were attributes that van der Stel held in high esteem. Groot Constantia has had an uninterrupted record as a wine farm and its name is forever linked to the most famous wines that were made in South Africa.

Today the estate is owned by Groot Contantia Trust. The aim of the Trust is to produce top quality wines, reflecting the full potential of the farm and the use the profit made to protect and maintain this treasure for thousand of visitors and future generations.

Daily Cellar Tours are offered and wine tasting as well as the 2 wonderful restaurants on the Estate. There is an orientation centre with its history dating back to early 1685. A visit to the Manor House and the Cloete cellar which was built in 1791, with its beautiful pediment is a must which portrays the early years at Groot Constantia.

Groot Constantia is open 7 days a week, except Good Friday, Christmas Day and the 1st January.
