The story of Groot Constantia Wine Estate, the finest surviving example of Cape Dutch architecture in Constantia and one of South Africa?s foremost historical monuments and tourist attractions in the Western Cape, dates back to 1685. In that year Simon van der Stel, the popular commander and later governor of the Cape, was granted land for a farm, which he named Constantia. When he died in 1712, the property was divided and a smaller farm created around the homestead and its outbuildings.
