The name Constantia is linked with the most famous wines ever produced in this country and it all began at our very own Groot Constantia. Today the Constantia Wine Route consists of 10 farms, each with their own distinctive heritage and premium wines. Enjoyed by Napoleon Bonaparte and royalty in the 18th century, the Constantia Wine Route’s unique combination of terroir and climate produces some of the world’s finest wines that continue to this day to win accolades and international awards for consistently high standard and quality.
Cradled between the Table Mountain range with its glorious Floral Kingdom and the coastal False Bay area,
the perfect microclimate produces World Class Wines distinctive in character and style.
