Groot Constantia

The Constantia Valley truly is Cape Town’s Vineyard.

It is the oldest wine producing region in the southern hemisphere with an uninterrupted history of winemaking since 1685. The area is steeped in history and is home to some of the best examples of Cape Dutch architecture. The largest wine estate, Groot Constantia, is home to Van der Stel’s original manor house museum and is an excellent example of this architectural style.

Indulge in wine tasting and cellar tours at the wine farms and buy your favourite tipple directly from the estate. There are numerous award-winning restaurants in the Constantia Vineyards.

The valley was the cradle of quality winemaking in South Africa and the name Constantia is linked with the most famous wines ever produced in this country. Enjoyed by Napoleon Bonaparte and royalty in the 18th century, Constantia Valley’s unique combination of terroir and climate produces some of the world’s finest wines that continue to this day to win accolades and international awards for consistently high standard and quality.
