What a night, Groot Constantia in the evening is spectacular. To commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Napoleon, Groot Constantia launched the Wine of Exile exhibition at a gala event at Groot Constantia on 21st February 2019.
Groot Constantia’s 2017 Chardonnay proudly represented South Africa as one of only two Chardonnays from the country to feature in the top 10 and to receive a Gold medal at the recent Chardonnay du Monde® awards. 35 countries competed in the international 2019 Chardonnay du Monde® competition.
Did you know? Both black and white grapes are the same bright green colour before ripening. Most grapes are harvested in autumn however the preparation of the annual harvest season begins at the culmination of summer. Every grape varietal is harvested at a certain time of day and optimal temperature to achieve the best quality for our wines. Harvesting in this manner is required, especially in our ever changing climate.
