With its beautifully preserved Cape Dutch architecture, onsite museum and fabulous restaurants, it’s not hard to understand why Groot Constantia is one of the most visited wine estates in the country. Its distinguished history dates back to 1685, and includes the supply of wines in early 19th century to Napoleon Bonaparte, said to have had a penchant for the honeyed nuances of the farm’s Vin de Constance. Open for tastings seven days a week, including most public holidays.
