We South Africans already knew it, but now it’s official; the best wine in the world comes from South Africa! That’s right a Cape Town wine was recently voted the best chardonnay in the world and we are positively elated by the news!

Our very own Groot Constantia’s Chardonnay 2013 was voted the best Chardonnay of all and won out a whopping 825 other wines from over 41 countries around the world at the 22nd annual Chardonnay du Monde competition in France that took place this week.

Of course, the WomenStuff team already knew Groot Constantia was fabulous but it’s great to know that the rest of the world agrees. Groot Constantia has been making wines for 350 years so it’s about time that one of South Africa’s oldest wineries received such an epic award from the wine world.

Say Hi to Groot Constantia on Facebook and celebrate along with them!
