Groot Constantia Estate is where the roots of the South African wine industry lie and it is the oldest wine producing farm in South Africa. It was developed by Simon van der Stel in 1685. Since then, Groot Constantia has had an uninterrupted record of being a wine farm and its name is forever linked to the most famous wines that were made in South Africa.
Today the Estate is owned by Groot Constantia Trust, a company without gain, whose main objective is to preserve this beautiful and historic estate for posterity and to honour the name of South African wine. Groot Constantia produces a range of wines, excelling in reds as well as whites. The Estate has won numerous awards for its wines, and has done so consistently.
