South Africa which once symbolized separateness, today stands for
diversity. Famous for its wines, safaris,
nature parks and beautiful coastline, the country at the tip of
the African continent will satisfy any traveler’s curiosity
and Cape Town is, arguably, one of the world’s most beautiful
Groot Constantia Wine Estate
Cape Town’s Groot Constantia wine estate, with its majestic
Cape Dutch architecture is the oldest and most historic of wine
farms in South Africa. The farm dates back 325 years, and over
all these years Constantia wine was coveted across the globe. Amongst
those who consumed its limited volumes were Napoleon Bonaparte,
Louis Philippe of France, Frederick II (The Great) of Prussia,
and the Lords Seventeen of the VOC (Dutch East India Company).
We are privileged to be able
to hold the festival and competition on such historic soil, especially
since the farm was started in the same year that Johan Sebastian Bach
was born. Besides the music events there are two excellent restaurants
(also catering for children), wine tasting tours and three Iziko museums,
including the ox-wagon exhibition and Cape Dutch Manor House.
The Estate is one of the big 6 places to visit in Cape Town, so whether
you are looking to actively or passively participate in the festival
you are also bound to find inspiration, upliftment, and much for the
body, mind and soul in these peaceful and exquisite surroundings.
