  • Profile

    Groot Constantia dates back to 1685, when the land was granted to Simon van der Stel. It is the oldest wine-producing estate in South Africa.

    The Manor House, with its exhibition of furniture, paintings, textiles, ceramics, brass, and copperware, provides an insight into the life of a successful 18th to late 19th century Cape farmer.

    The original Cloete Cellar, which hosts the Wine Museum and where the world-famous sweet wines of Constantia were made, exhibits wine storage and drinking vessels from antiquity to the early 20th century. Panel, object and archaeological displays give an overview of Groot Constantia from the past to present, including slavery on the estate.

    A carriage collection on the farm is exhibited in the coach house that forms part of the Jonkershuis complex.
