Wine Estate

Groot Constantia Estate is the oldest wine estate in South Africa, and it is here that the country's thriving wine industry has its roots. Since its origin in 1685, Groot Constantia has always been a wine farm and its name is forever linked to the most famous wines that were so highly prized by the European gentry in the 18th century.

Mother Nature smiled when she prepared the Constantia Valley for the winemaker. She bestowed on him the influence of the sun, wind, oceans and fertile soil, and then challenged him to plant vineyards and make excellent wines.

So little was produced and it was of such uncompromising quality that it was exclusively bought and consumed by the aristocracy of the world. Members of the British Royal House and many other dignitaries coveted the Constantia label and treated their guests to it.
