Groot Constantia

Taste 330 years of history in this vineyard's wines.

The vineyards of Groot Constantia in Cape Town

Founded in 1685, Groot Constantia is the oldest wine-producing vineyard in South Africa. The Cape Government bought it at public auction in the late 1880s, and today it is owned by a trust dedicated to preserving the property.

Along with gardens and a historic farm, you can tour the wine maturation cellar, which displays wine-making equipment. Among tasting events are those that feature the staff in period clothing. Jonkershuis restaurant serves Cape cuisine paired with estate vintages.

And, don't miss a visit to the Orientation Centre and Homestead, both of which are part of the Iziko Museums of South Africa, and house historical artifacts and photographs.
