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.

  • High quality wines for tasting, great knowledge shared by the staff and the staff engaged with customers to make it more fun. A choice of 5 wines and if you’re lucky a couple of extras, be nice to...

  • What an extremely pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon lunch. Super staff, lovely atmosphere in the courtyard restaurant and great views of the estate from the terrace! Bobotie was on the menu...

  • A good experience, but the service was slow and they didn’t have much to add about each wine - just a 10 second description. The chocolate was very tasty! The tour was better (about 30 Mins) and our guide was very informative. We did not purchase any wine.
  • Amazing food! The Eggs Benedict with their gluten-free bread, is a true saviour. I could never find a good gluten-free bread until now🙌🏻
  • Absolutely fantastic experience, The host was very accommodating. We were quite a large group and he was hands on. We were even given our glasses as a keepsake.I would highly recommend
  • We had a lovely wine tasting at Groot Constantia. I regret that I can't remember his name (a testament to the wine!), but our sommelier took very good care of us and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed the tasting. Excellent service and lovely wine!
  • A beautiful wine estate in the Constantia valley. The beautiful buildings of yesteryear are very special. There are wonderful restaurants on the estate. Breakfast, lunch or dinner or a casual coffee. The views are stunning, the oak trees magnificent, no wonder it is a popular wine tasting place or tourist destination. You can even catch the Red Bus!
