On 2 May, Bistro Sixteen82 becomes a haven where the much-anticipated Red Wine Rendezvous awaits to take you on a culinary journey: the evening starts with a glass of Steenberg’s famed MCC, followed by an exquisitely crafted 3-course dining experience, accompanied by a selection of Steenberg’s finest red wines. Set alongside the blazing hearth and the intimate interiors of Bistro 1682, expect hearty flavours, seasonal ingredients, and award-winning wines that bring new comfort to the wintery nights of the Cape Winelands.

Steenberg is celebrating International Sauvignon Blanc Day throughout May, proudly highlighting its status as a specialist Sauvignon Blanc producer. With 67% of Sauvignon Blanc vines planted, the Steenberg terroir is perfectly suited to this varietal. This dedicated focus allows Steenberg to showcase the versatility of Sauvignon Blanc, crafting different styles with expert craftsmanship.

The tasting room promises a unique experience, featuring three distinct Sauvignon Blanc styles alongside a vintage bottle to exemplify the agreeability of their wines. Guests can savour these tastings at Tryn before their dinner reservation from Monday to Friday between 17:00 and 19:00, or alternatively, after a brunch at Bistro every day in May, offering a delightful prelude or conclusion to an exceptional culinary experience.

Or simply curate your own experience – be it for a birthday or a special occasion – with beautifully appointed spaces available at Steenberg. Located on the first floor of Bistro Sixteen82, the Terroir Terrace is as serene as it is functional and easily transitions from a light and peaceful space to a dynamic work area; while on the other side of the farm, located at Tryn restaurant, the Ruby Room and the Cuvée Room are every bit as chic and modern as they are warm and inviting.
