Steenberg Vineyards

Steenberg Vineyards was established in 1682 on the slopes of the Steenberg mountains, and is the oldest farm in the Constantia Valley. It forms part of the world-famous Constantia Wine Route. 

There are 63 hectares under vines, with 70% being Sauvignon Blanc, the vineyard's speciality. Red cultivars, including Merlot, Shiraz and Nebbiolo, are also grown. But Steenberg is much more than just a vineyard – it boasts two beautiful restaurants, a spa and a hotel.

Its bistro-style cellar-door restaurant and wine-tasting experience has raised the bar, no mean feat considering Constantia boasts some of the finest dining in Cape Town. Bistro Sixteen82, named for the year in which Steenberg was established, creates food that complements the wines, in a relaxed setting.

Catharina's Restaurant has locally made custom furniture, sweeping views of False Bay and the vineyards. The conservatory has unusual water features, which add to the ambience. 

The beautifully appointed five-star hotel is set among vineyards and in close proximity to the Steenberg golf course. Some of the hotel buildings date back to 1682. There are three Heritage Suites, which seamlessly blend period antiques with sophisticated technology.
