Groot Constantia represents one of South Africa's oldest wine estates, with origins dating back to the late 1600s. This fully operational farm boasts a rich 300-year history. Insired by the late Dutch Renaissance style, the site's original manor house featured white marble and red stone. You can take a bus tour to see best views of the vineyards and the estate itself, or take a guided cellar tour and experience first-hand how the wine is made. Be sure to stop at the estate's museum, which offers a glimpse into its rich history. Discover how to plan a Cape Town trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • Had heard about Groot Constantia. I new it was well known and sought after place to visit. It is the oldest wine estate in South Africa. (Founded in 1685) The Gardens are tranquil. I sat at Simon's for a cup of coffee with my students. It was lovely there. The warm winter sun spilled all over the grounds. One can sense the history and one can enjoy the present moment. Definitely worth visiting!
  • The wine is the best I've had so far. The staff is so informative .. I give this place a yaaaas/5. It's a vibe
  • Lovely place to book a picnic under the trees over looking a little pond and vinyards. Very good food and excellent wine.
  • Informative wine tour. Private wine tasting was superbly done with our hostess being very knowledgeable.
  • Beautifull wine farm. Loved the ducks. Enjoyed the tour but did not enjoy the wine at all.
