The Vineyards

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. Since 1990, 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. 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 ascent.
