Anton Anrieth Groote Constantia pediment restoration at the old wine cellars.

We have been visiting the wine farm named Groote Constantia for decades, this art work has never looked better!

The most famous work is by Anton Anrieth, its remarkable, magnificent!

Circa 1791.

Anton signed up to the military and that got him out of his native Germany, shipping to the cape.

Click on the pictures to enlarge them, the camera used was a Canon G1X digital, this shot was
 on a 4 x tele shot, which is a disapointing maximum.

I can advise visting early rather than late when the place can become really busy with tourists.

The main house is to the left of the camera and really worth the visit when your in Cape Town.
