Celebrating 331 Years of Legendary Wines
Grand Constance

The oldest wine producing estate in South Africa is ready to welcome you with award-winning wines, history and spectacular views.

Winter in Cape Town offers the ideal weather to enjoy a glass of Grand Constance - South Africa's oldest wine - perfectly chilled at 11°C.

Both the 2012 and 2013 Grand Constance have achieved a Gold Award at the Monde Selection International Wine Contest in consecutive years. Read more about this achievement here.

An Afternoon with Grand Constance

An Afternoon with Grand Constance

In celebration of the award-winning Grand Constance, we spent an afternoon wining and dining foodies and wine lovers. Come and spend an afternoon enjoying the sweet flavours of the wine that's been a brand since the Napoleonic era.

You can enjoy Grand Constance with delicious foods at Jonkershuis Restaurant.


#GrootBlanket and the Twitter Blanket Drive

#GrootBlanket and Twitter Blanket Drive

Groot Constantia joined this noble cause in collecting blankets for those in need during the cold winter months. As South Africa's oldest wine producing estate, we're forever indebted to the people and communities in the Constantia Valley that helped the estate become world-renowned.

We collected a whopping 174 blankets via donations from visitors to our estate and we set aside two dates where people who donated a blanket would get rewarded with a free wine tasting. Find out how we did it.

Groot Constantia wins SAWi Top Wine Producer 2016 Award

Groot Constantia was rated the Top South African Wine Producer for 2016 by The South African Wine Index (SAWi). Over the years a lot of effort went into establishing the right varietals in an appropriate terroir on Groot Constantia.

The vineyard and winemaking teams have tapped into the versatility of the Groot Constantia terroir and again have proven why this Estate's wine was so popular amongst European royalty more than 2 centuries ago. Please raise a glass with us as we celebrate this magnificent achievement. Read about the full award and honour bestowed on wine-maker Boela Gerber and viticulturist Floricius Beukes here.
