Wine & Food

food-at-constantia.1

Groot Constantia Wine Estate produces an award-winning wine to please every palette. Enjoy a fresh and cheerful Blanc de Noir or a beautifully complex Chardonnay. Discover a bold Shiraz or our seductive Grand Constance. With three wine-tasting venues on the estate, you can find your favourite in surroundings that suit your style.

A wine is best appreciated accompanied by a meal and chosen to suit the occassion. Pair an elegant Brut Rosé with a gourmet anniversary picnic on our lawns; choose a light and fresh Semillon for an al fresco lunch under our aged oaks; sip an expressive Pinotage during a family feast; or toast a milestone by the fireplace with a dignified glass of Gouverneurs Reserve.

Our History

dividerWhite

In 1679 Simon van der Stel was appointed by the Dutch East India Company. After years of loyal service, he requested land from the Company. He periodically sent out riders to collect soil samples in 1685. He chose 891 morgen (about 763 ha) situated behind Table Mountain for its wine growing potential and magnificent scenery. He named his farm "Constantia" - Latin for constancy or steadfastness - attributes that Van der Stel held in high esteem.

Over the years the wines produced on the estate have caught the attention of influential people across the globe – clearly due to its impressive quality. Global aristocracy made sure that they had enough stock of this acclaimed and precious product.
