Very well organised wine tasting. There is just no way you can visit Cape Town and not go to Groot Constancia Estate. Very good wines, however the Desert wine, is my absolute favourite.

The wine is not cheap, but it is very good. The wine tasting was very well organized and the server sounded genuinely interested in making our experience special.

Hi, visited during recent CapeTown visit. This is central to city, one of oldest but also has pretty costly wines. Good, in case you have limited time in hands, if not there are other wine regions near CapeTown

Having spent 5 days wine tasting in Stellanboch, Franschhoek and The Cape, we finished off at Groot Constantia. Groot is the oldest, biggest and busiest of any winery we went to. This place has sold its soul and in my opinion, lost its heart. We...More

It's not necessary. Your guest house may be able to call ahead though and get you the best times and maybe even a voucher.

The whole estate and grounds is open and free to enter. You only pay to access the main house or for a wine tasting. The location is beautiful just aim for a weekday outside school holidays.
