About Us



“At the dawning of the Cape, the swans rejoined, feeding in paradise at the foot of the Steenberg Mountains.” 

Steenberg holds 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 estate boasts a state of the art modern winery, producing some of the country’s finest award winning wines. 

The luxurious Steenberg Hotel is also situated on the Cape’s oldest farm, a mere twenty-minute drive from the bustling heart of Cape Town. Award-winning chef, Garth Almazan, will host you at the Catharina’s Restaurant in which guests are invited to relax, dine in style and enjoy sophisticated South African cuisine. 

The professional staff in the luxurious and spacious spa will offer guests the perfect treatment to suit their particular needs. A championship 18-hole golf course designed by Peter Matkovich, makes full use of the natural features and hazards of the estate surrounding the hotel. Invest in a beautiful home in Steenberg Estate at Steenberg Property.
