Groot Constantia is nestled in the fertile Constantia Valley. It is here that we believe time should be taken to first understand and then consume our award-winning wines to please every palate. The Groot Contantia Wine Estate is the oldest wine-producing farm in South Africa.
Groot Constantia’s rich history shows how one man’s love of wine established South Africa’s first wine farm more than 330 years ago and how those 891 morgen of land formed the origins of the commercial South African wine industry, with Emperors and Kings such as Frederick the Great of Prussia and King Louis Phillipe of France buying ‘Constantia Wyn’ at auctions across Europe.
