Groot Constantia Wine Estate

Groot Constantia is a historical wine estate located in Cape Town, South Africa. It is the oldest working winery in the country, and today it operates as a museum and tourist destination. Visitors can take tours of the grounds, learn about the estate’s history, and enjoy tastings of the wines produced here.

Groot Constantia has a long and storied history, dating back to 1685 when it was founded by Dutch governor Simon van der Stel. For many years, the estate was one of the most productive and successful wine farms in the Cape Colony. However, it fell into decline in the early 20th century and was eventually abandoned. It wasn’t until 1969 that Groot Constantia was revived as a historical site and working winery. 

Today, it is once again a popular destination for tourists and wine lovers alike. Visitors can take a educational tour of the estate to learn about the wine-making process, and sample some of the Estate’s wines. The estate also has a restaurant and a museum, which are both worth a visit.
