With your back to the iconic Manor House you are looking over the Groot Constantia courtyard, home to the Cloete Cellar. This historical wine cellar was built in the late 1700's by Hendrik Cloete. It is the birthplace of Grand Constance - the iconic sweet wine of Constantia.

The courtyard is a working space welcoming tens of thousands of visitors each year.

The magnificent Cloete Cellar warehouse/wine cellar is a two-storey building with a Greek-mythology inspired pediment gable by sculptor Anton Anreith.
