What a wonderful vineyard. Loved the tasting room and the tastings especially the pinotage. The estate staff are friendly and besides tasting wine there's heaps to see and do including a tour of the cellars.

We had an amazing time at Groot Constantia. The scenery was beautiful. The wine was amazing. You can also purchase wine if you want. Go visit the museum and walk around the vineyards. One of my favorite places to visit in Cape Town.
