Steenberg hold the distinction of being the oldest farm in the picturesque Constantia Valley, which is generally considered to be South Africa’s premier wine growing region. With its cool, sea-facing slopes and majestic granite ridges, this vineyard has developed a worldwide reputation for producing excellent Cape wines.
The land was originally granted to a widow, Catharina Ras, in 1682. Wines were first produced on the farm in 1695. The farm was first known as Swaaneweide – the feeding place of swans; it was only later renamed as Steenberg, in honour of the imposing mountain which towers over it. Steenberg is the southern-most wine farm in the Constantia Valley, it thus benefits greatly from the cooling influence of nearby False Bay. Since1990, some 68 ha have been planted, comprising of a number of cultivars including its flagship cultivar Sauvignon Blanc as well as Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz and Nebbiolo.
The state-of-the-art cellar, completed in 1996, has the capacity to produce around 70 000 cases. The cellar also boasts a vinotheque, where bottled wines can be kept under ideal conditions until ready to be enjoyed.
In November 2009, a new tasting centre and Bistro will open the doors at the Winery.
Steenberg’s flagship Sauvignon Blanc Reserve has won awards year after year. The winery’s distinctive red blend – Catharina – is widely recognized for its elegant, old-world French style. The international reputation of Steenberg’s distinctive wines is fast on the ascendant.
