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.

PRINS & PRINS DIAMONDS MUSEUM OF GEMS AND JEWELLERY
This unique museum project takes visitors on a journey from when diamonds first began to form three billion years ago and their 150 km journey to the surface, following the unique path of South African diamonds from their origin in extinct volcanoes to the deposits along our coastline. Learn about unique and rare gemstones, and see how jewellery has changed through thousands of years. The story about South Africa’s mineral wealth is told, not only for diamonds, but also for our Platinum and Gold deposits.
29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well-known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations.
This cultural village aims to remind us of our origin and serves as the reservoir for African knowledge pertaining to nature and traditions, giving us an opportunity to celebrate who we are through music (wonderful sounds from live bands) or from its’ distinct fineness of cuisine, topped up with African (local) arts and crafts.
