Steenberg Wine

Despite its gracious five star boutique hotel, two great restaurants, luxury spa and championship golf course Steenberg is first and formost a farm, the oldest in the Constantia Valley, and has been producing wine since 1695. Named after the mountain which overlooks it Steenberg (translation – Stone Mountain)  is the southern-most wine farm in the Constantia Valley and  benefits greatly from the cooling influence of nearby False Bay. Since 1990, there are 60ha under vine, of which 48ha have grown to bear fruit. The cultivars on the farm at the moment are: Cabernet Sauvignon; Pinot Noir; Nebbiolo; Merlot; Shiraz; Sauvignon Blanc; Semillon.

The wine theme runs throughout the hotel with room names like Pinotage, Shiraz and Chardonnay and hotel guests can enjoy a complimentary wine tasting relaxing on comfy couches in the wine tasting lounge or out on the terrace while soaking up the sun and views. Or for an express wine tasting there’s the purpose built oval wine tasting bar.

Obviously wine plays a huge part in the restaurants too with the Catharina’s wine list being made up of some of the best 100 wines South Africa has to offer and a tasting menu with paired wine. They even give the option of an organic wine pairing with each vegetarian dish on the ‘Meat Free Mondays’ menu.

The ladies and gents who produce Steenbergs wines certainly deserve praise not just for their award winning wines but also for their bravery. With vines alongside nearly every hole on the golf course stray golf balls have caused a few nasty bruises!

We’ve got 5 bottles of Steenberg’s 2007 Merlot to give away and all you need to do to win one is tweet what you’d like to see on a tasty African menu using the hashtag #tastyafrica. The competition is only open to UK residents aged over 18 and the judges decision is final.

    Exploring Tanzanias Northern Circuit

    It had been a few years since my last visit to Northern Tanzania, an area on many people’s bucket list, and an area with names that evoke all sorts of emotions. My memories of my first visit to Tanzania, about 20 years ago, are still with me – particularly the cheetah sighting in the tall grass of the Serengeti, when the cubs got told off by their Mum, because she lost the Tommy she had just caught for their dinner, as they were otherwise occupied with some rough and tumble.
