Savour Award Winning Wine In The Cape’s Grandest Estate

The moment you enter Groot Constantia wine estate you’ll realise you’re in for a unique experience. This is the South Africa’s oldest wine producing estate, established by Simon van der Stel in 1685, and it is a certified national monument. What awaits you is a captivating culmination of South African heritage, delectable dining at two restaurants, a museum, art gallery, and, of course, an award-winning selection of wines, all available for tasting. The dramatic oak-lined avenue takes you directly into the Historical core of the estate, where you’ll find the 17th century Manor House, arguably the finest surviving example of Cape Dutch architecture in South Africa, and the view from in front of this grand old homestead will most certainly put you in the perfect mind-set to experience what is easily the Cape’s finest estate.
