The Cape’s first farm, established in 1682, has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Steenberg Wine Estate is famous for the excellence of its Sauvignon Blanc and MCC wines, its comprehensive leisure offerings, its beautiful setting, and its commitment to providing a unique experience that combines wine, golf, and hospitality in a historic and picturesque location.
Recently the wine farm won the Veritas Awards, with Cellarmaster Elunda Basson taking home two Double Gold medals and two Gold medals.
