  • Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro Sixteen82 first opened its doors in 2009, and has been the tapas and bistro-style darling of the dining world ever since.

    An innovative and interactive wine and food destination, the Bistro sits adjacent to Steenberg’s winery, and spills into its surrounding indigenous gardens with a terraced dining area leading to reflective water features, unfurling into views of the magnificent stone mountains and expansive winelands.

    The Bistro Sixteen82 menu is a constant evolution, keeping up with seasonal produce and featuring inventive dishes that complement the finest locally sourced ingredients. With Breakfast, Lunch and late-afternoon Tapas menus to choose from, the Bistro provides dining with an inimitable contemporary spirit.

    Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, loves to create food which is seasonal, flavourful and bursts with freshness. “My greatest inspirations are derived from significant occasions in my life. On my travels to Thailand I developed a love and passion for Asian food. From shopping at the local food markets to creating my first authentic Thai dish, I was in heaven. You will notice a common thread in what I do and who I am. I cook with love and my food is love.”

  • Dedicated to Steenberg’s 17th century founder, Catharina Ras, or Tryn as she was known to her nearest and dearest; this restaurant is contemporary in spirit with delicious food, a bold and modern interior, gorgeous views and a relaxed atmosphere.

    Nestled in the idyllic Constantia Valley winelands, here you can indulge in refined dining in a serene setting with delightfully wholesome breakfasts, light and easy lunches and sumptuous and flavoursome dinners. Dine in one of the beautifully decorated rooms or on the large sun-dappled terraces with vineyard
    and garden views.

    Allow the children to roam free on the lawns, explore the gardens or amuse themselves with lawn games.

    As the sun sets; intimate pre-dinner gatherings in the trendy bar lounge with friends and a cocktail in hand, make for a memorable occasion.

  • The Tasting Room is situated adjacent to Bistro Sixteen82 with three areas for wine tasting: the terrace, lounge and around the oval bar.

    With infinity pools and reflective water features set before some of the most remarkable scenery in Cape Town, guests are able to relax and appreciate the natural beauty and architecture around them. What could be better than reclining on the couches and tasting the wines of Steenberg, without a care in the world? Personalised wine tasting experiences can be accommodated upon request.

  • Steenberg is situated in the Constantia wine ward at the foot of the Table Mountain National Park. Being a mere 5km from the icy Atlantic Ocean ensures cool growing conditions year round, ideal for producing elegant wines.

    The lean soil of decomposed granite helps retain water and contributes to the distinctive minerality of the wines. Steenberg has 60 ha under vine, of which 70% is white (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon), and 30% is red (Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Malbec). From an initial 2000 cases, Steenberg now produces over 55 000 cases per annum.

    Steenberg strives to produce wines that are true to their unique terroir and reflect a sense of place.

  • Steenberg Golf Estate and private Golf Club is situated in the lush Constantia Valley, just 20 minutes from the centre of Cape Town.

    The golf course – consistently named one of the best conditioned courses in South Africa Golf Digest’s annual Top 100 – attracts golfers seeking a total golfing experience. Known for its hybrid plan, it offers traditionalists the opportunity to ‘bump and run’ (a rare shot in South Africa) in the rough around the greens, and to meet the challenges of strategically placed sand pits and waterways.

    The par-three, not-so-short 14th hole, features the largest green in Africa at 76 meters in length. Indigenous shrubs guard the green and the mound has been shaped to echo the distinctive mountain range behind.

    The 18-hole golf course was designed to make full use of natural features and hazards such as the vineyards, pine forest and gentle waterways. Its environmental diversity gives the course its unique character.

    The well-designed and refurbished clubhouse has seen many golfers enjoying the 19th hole.

    The Steenberg Golf Club is open to the public, but priority and special green fee rates are given to hotel guests and members.
