20 March 2020

Dear friends and family of Steenberg

We find ourselves in troublesome times as we all attempt to navigate this new and unknown territory brought upon us by the Coronavirus pandemic. As we begin to understand the wide-reaching consequences of COVID-19 on our country and its people, we all need to play our part in helping President Cyril Ramaphosa in his attempts to “flatten the curve” and minimise the spread.

We wish to assure you that to date, to the best of our knowledge, no Steenberg staff member has tested positive for COVID-19. The health and safety of our dedicated staff is of utmost priority and steps are continuously being taken to ensure their wellbeing.

After careful consideration in support of social distancing, which appears to be the best way forward, we have decided to err on the side of caution by reducing our operations substantially with immediate effect at our tasting room, restaurants, hotel & spa.

Steenberg Wine tasting and restaurants

  • Steenberg Tasting Room and Bistro Sixteen82 will remain closed until further notice.
  • Our wines are, as always, available for purchase online and we are offering free delivery on all orders from now until 30 June 2020. Our production and distribution teams are continuing to work under strict hygiene conditions to bring our wines to you.
  • Tryn, our new signature restaurant, is closed to all external guests, until further notice.

Steenberg Hotel

  • The Hotel will close as of Saturday, 28 March 2020.
  • All bookings as of Monday, 23 March 2020 may be postponed without penalty to a future date within the next 12 months (excluding Dec/Jan/Feb).
  • Outright cancellations will be managed on a case by case basis.


  • The spa is closed until further notice.
  • Our products are still available to purchase, please e-mail us on to place your order and we will courier them to you. 


  • All bookings as of 20 March 2020 may be postponed to a future date within the next 12 months. No penalty fee will apply.
  • Outright cancellations will be managed on a case by case basis.

We intend keeping these precautionary measures in place for as long as is necessary to safeguard the well-being of our guests, staff and greater community.

Our thoughts are with you all as we navigate this very challenging time together. Take care and keep yourselves, your friends and loved ones safe.

Please keep in touch via our social media platforms for further updates and do not hesitate to get in touch if we can be of further assistance.

We look forward to welcoming you back at Steenberg when these trying times are safely behind us.

The Steenberg team
