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.

  • A good place for wine tasting. Food is good and the service is nice and professional. I purchased six bottles of wine after wine tasting. There is a kind of museum for introducing the history of wine development in this area. They can do free delivering to you hotel in Cape Town if you purchase more than six bottles. It takes around 2-3 days for delivering. It is helpful for people who take red bus here.
  • The tour and wine tasting at Groot Constantia is nothing short of a treat. An informative, knowledgeable guide took us on a tour of their fascinating wine making facilities. The wine tasting afterwards gives our a wide range to pick from and one gets to taste quite a few too. The people helping there are also very friendly and knowledgeable about the wine.
  • It amazing. Such a fantastic experience of wine testing. Have a tour of wine yards and the grapes ground. Delicious wine and foods are available. can be spent lovely time with honey wine. Staff is very friendly.
  • It's a beautiful place! We unfortunately did not get to tour the vineyards and the grounds as it was raining. But our experience, alone, of the wine tasting was absolutely splendid. Such friendly staff and the food at the restaurant is unforgettable. Great exclusive wines too! I'll definitely be coming back to this gem of a place on my next trip to CPT!
  • Wine tasting experience ranks amongst the best experience I have ever had and most importantly - I made a lot new friends. I guess, with the magic of wine anything is possible. 😀 Taking all in the picturesque Constantia Valley was an inspiring treat.
