About Groot Constantia

GROOT CONSTANTIA is South Africa’s oldest and most famous wine producing estate, dating back to 1685. The farm “Constantia”, comprising 891 morgen, was granted to Simon van der Stel more than 330 years ago, and is situated on the foothills of Table Mountain. When one considers that the sweet wine of Constantia, today known as “Grand Constance”, was a favourite of many members of the British Royal House, Napoleon Bonaparte, King Louis Philippe of France, Frederick (The Great) of Prussia, the Lord Seventeen of the VOC, governors, admirals, captains, and many more 17th & 18th Century dignitaries, it becomes clear why Groot Constantia wines became legendary the world over.

Those fortunate enough to have tasted it soon refused to settle for anything less. Wine and heritage remain at the heart of the Constantia Valley and Groot Constantia still stands as a pinion of excellence for the South African wine industry. Groot Constantia is an ideal model for the preservation of the cultural and historical heritage of South Africa.
