GROOT CONSTANTIA: A WINE LOVER’S PARADISE

Wine enthusiasts travel far and wide to visit Groot Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine estate, which has produced outstanding wines uninterrupted since 1685. Its award-winning vintages remain prized worldwide today. The estate takes great pride in its historic Grand Constance, a sweet wine dating to the Napoleonic era, available only at the Cloete Cellar where it originated. The Cellar also houses a tasting room and museum displaying a 195-year-old Grand Constance bottle returned to its birthplace. Two additional tasting rooms offer decadent chocolate pairings alongside distinguished wines. Visitors are encouraged to follow the new Visitor Route Experience to tour the historic Manor House Museum, original Cloete Cellar, and enjoy a cellar tour and tasting. The Experience includes a Spiegelau Crystal wine glass to take home.
