Steenberg Farm

The Cape’s first farm, established in 1682, has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Roughly 30 minutes from the bustling heart of Cape Town, Steenberg is a destination steeped in heritage.

Steenberg Hotel & Spa offers exquisite hospitality with spectacular views and plenty of history, all wrapped in understated luxury and discreet, personalised service. Exceptional cuisine at two signature restaurants caters for all tastes, from contemporary dining in a relaxed setting at Catharina’s Restaurant to bistro-style fare and tapas at the Bistro Sixteen82.

An outstanding winery, producing some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc and Méthode Cap Classique in South Africa, along with other celebrated wines, and an 18-hole championship golf course, make Steenberg a complete leisure destination in idyllic Constantia.


Wine Sales

The oldest registered farm in the Cape, Steenberg Vineyards produces a range of much-loved wines through a process of environmentally considerate and dedicated winemaking.


Bistro Sixteen82

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.


Catharina’s Restaurant

Catharina’s Restaurant at Steenberg pays homage to the woman who started it all, the fascinating and feisty Catharina Ras, who founded Steenberg in the 17th century.



From meetings and weddings to all different kinds of celebrations, choose Steenberg as your perfect venue.
