Groot means Large in Afrikaans. Simon Van Der Stel built the Manor House and produced wine, fruit, vegetables and had cattle on the farm. Simon Van Der Stel died in 1712 and the farm was then split into 3 parts – Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia and Bergvliet.

The oldest farm is Steenberg Wine Estate that was established in 1682 by Catherina Ustings Ras. She was a German immigrant to the Cape Dutch Colony. Steenberg is translates - Mountain of Stone. Due to the rocky mountains the farm is surrounded by. Ras received a lease from Simon Van Der Stel to cultivate the land and then received the deed for the land after Simon Van Der Stel founded Groot Constantia. The farm then was called Swaaneweide which means – feeding place of the swans. Ras then grew 30 000 vines and supplied the ships that docked in Simon's Town in Winter as the bay was safer in Simon's Town during the winter period.
