The Entrance to the Estate

Groot Constantia is South Africa's oldest and best known wine estate.

Besides being one of South Africa’s most visited tourist attractions, it is also a fully operational farm, where a wide range of quality estate wines are created and sold (seven days a week).
Constantia wines are known for their excellence.

The estate is an ideal example for the preservation of the cultural and historical heritage of South Africa.
Three core museums are housed within estate. The Manor House is a magnificent example of Cape Dutch architecture and houses a fine collection of period furniture and ceramics.
