Groot Constantia, Constantia

4.2
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.

  • The wine tasting has become to commercial. We entered and waited a while. No one approached us to assist. After calling someone over, they just explained that we will be assisted and walked away. After a while we again walked add asked for help. Made our payment for the wine tasting and was pointed to another counter where we waited again. After a while we were assisted. We did not feel welcomed at the place.
  • I’ve been here multiple times. Beautiful old winery with multiple venues and places to visit within the estate. The first building is a tasting room. If you proceed further in you get to the different restaurants and sitting areas. Very beautiful, large green open spaces , classical dutch architecture. Top wine farm in this area, a must see!
  • Must have - if you visit Capetown. Great wines - love the red "Lady of Abundance" ... enjoy a meal at "simons restaurant"
  • Visited for a wine tasting. Beautiful old winery with various venues to visit in the estate. Our visit was rushed as they were closing.
  • Took the tour which was only somewhat interesting but I was surprised that they offered only a few wines to sample. No real tour of the growing areas, ie the vines themselves which in other places they are usually very proud of. The restaurant. Simon's was closed for some reason.
