  • Groot Constantia: A Journey Through Time

    Having safely left the kids with daddy day care, I recently had the privilege of visiting Groot Constantia for the very first time with a close friend and colleague.

  • Harvest Report

    The 2014 harvest was preceded by a very cold and wet winter. There was a hint of an early spring in August before the last extremely cold and wet spell of winter hit the Cape. We even had snow on Table Mountain on the 22nd of September.

    All of this ensured even budding, and also even flowering, veraison and more importantly, even ripening.

  • Boela Gerber: From humble expressions to greatness

    The distinct aroma of freshly pressed grapes fills my being as I enter the slightly cool cellar at Groot Constantia on a cloudy Cape Town morning. I make a stop at the wine tasting counter enquiring about the man I came to see today.

    I am told, in no uncertain terms, that I will find him in the cellar, busy with his wines…

  • A word from Jean Naude

    "Our worth" says the Estate’s General Manager, Jean Naude, "is our tradition. The quality of every wine must be guaranteed. That’s the essence on which a brand like this stands. If we produced a mediocre bottle it would amount to an abuse, a waste, of the 326 years of history that have gone into producing this brand."
