Steenberg Vineyards forms part of the Constantia Valley Wine Region, the oldest New World Wine Region in the world. The region is known as a cool-climate region. We produce a range of much-loved wines through a process of environmentally considerate and dedicated winemaking.
From vine to bottle, Steenberg’s wines are primed to produce an experience that evokes the unique terroir of the estate.
Steenberg underwent extensive soil and micro-climatic analyses before a complete replanting programme was begun. There are 59.5ha under vine of which 70% is white. The philosophy is that the "wines are grown in the vineyard and then cared for in the winery". Special attention was therefore placed in obtaining the very best and latest known clones and matched to the correct soils and slopes.
Environmentally considerate farming practices are employed as far as possible, with the help of non-toxic, natural formulas of pest control, and the employment of natural predators for help in keeping the grapes as healthy as possible.
