With lockdown many South Africans have become familiar with “lockdown birthdays” – paired down celebrations enjoyed quietly in your own space with only the closest family present to toast the occasion. This is exactly how Groot Constantia celebrated its 335th birthday – the official date of which fell on 13 July – the date that the original title deed to the Estate was signed in 1685.
335 years is a long time to make friends and build connections and Groot Constantia is extremely blessed to enjoy a large circle of supporters who recently sent us their birthday wishes in this awesome video that left us all with a big smile on our faces, and a lump in our throats.
In 2010 a local entrepreneur, Robin von Holdt, founded the Top 100 SA Wines competition to highlight the excellence of South African wines while also providing a reference point for wine lovers across the globe. Groot Constantia has been entering our wines into this competition since its inception. When the SA Top 100 Wine Show started ten years ago the Estate had one wine under the Top 100.
Groot Constantia was positioned as a non-profit company in 1993 to fulfil the very specific role of promoting the South African wine industry and South Africa as a whole. Since then, the Estate has grown in prominence and has leapt forward to fully step into its role over the last five years.
