The drive there had a beautiful view of the mountains and lots of greenery. We had a warm welcome from our host named Wesley who is very knowledgeable and helpful. The prices of the tasting is affordable and We discovered a lot about the brand. We didn't have a reservation to the restaurant but he made a plan for us which was very sweet. Thank for going an extra mile. We bought some few items to enjoy at home. Beautiful place indeed.
Thank you.

Had a tasting today on a busy busy day. Initially no seating available but Babalwa attended to us with great attention and was more than accommodating. She really did make the experience worth while with her top class service and wine knowledge.

This is a really relaxed tasting with good measures of each wine. We were seated on the patio and chose the classic tasting of one sparkling, two whites and two reds. It was very pleasant way to spend an hour!

Our server was informative, and brought the next wine after we finished the current.

It would have been nice to have a cracker or two and maybe some water, but a good tasting for sure.

We were Steenberg guests since more than ten years, and left a lot money as well as at the restaurant and at the winery. But today it was the worst experience ever. I asked a server, if we can buy a bottle of wine for a sundowner and drink it at the garden wall. It was around five o clock, not quite busy... „No, that’s impossible, you need to book a table at the bistro“ he answered. So we did. But after that a lot of people sat at the wall with a bottle of wine. I ask the man at the counter how that could be, he said, they broke the law... and turned around, left me alone without a word more. All the people were allowed to sit there and had fun. I was not able to talk to him anymore, he disappeared. Another waiter didn’t answer me at all. I felt extremely unwelcome. That is not the way to treat guests. It was definitely my last visit at Steenberg.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We can assure you that the manner in which you were spoken to is not the standard of Steenberg Vineyards. The Tasting Room does not have the liquor licensing facility to be able to serve wine by the bottle and therefore may only serve tasting size portions of wine. Bistro Sixteen82 however has the ability and licensing to serve wine by the glass or bottle. We trust you will give us the opportunity to delight you once again. Regards, Desiree Van der Schyff

Our wine tasting experience was fantastic - you can choose to sit inside in the lounge or outside but you will need to book.

We chose the Flagship tasting (which is complimentary for hotel guests) so were able to taste 6 of their wines which included the Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc (x2), Semillon, Nebbiolo and the Catharina Red Blend as well as a glass of the Lady R Cap Classique. We really enjoyed all the wines but loved the Chardonnay & Catharina Blend and took a couple of bottles away with us to enjoy back in the UK (or perhaps now in our quarantine hotel !!).

We much looking forward to returning as soon as we are able.

Wine tasting was disappointing for my clients, seems the lady who presented the wines was way to busy to really pay attention to the presentation. Rattled off a few facts and quickly rushed away no passion for the product it would seem.
However the dinner was nice at the restaurant, good food and good service.

We arrived about 4.30pm on a Monday to do a tasting. We got a fabulous table outside the bistro near the pools with a gorgeous view of the mountains. Our server, Phiwe, was very friendly and helpful. There were 4 of us and we each had different tastings. I personally had the bubbly tasting (4 sparkling wines) and loved it! Phiwe was super knowledgeable and friendly and made the whole experience really fun. It was perfectly paced and the tasting servings were generous. It took about 1.5 hours total. The setting is beautiful! I highly recommend a visit here and will definitely return.

This was actually our last stop on a wine tasting adventure but actually ended as being the best, save the best for last they say. Good service by an extremely knowledgeable lady (forgot her name). We purchased many wines

My wife and I visited Steenberg on 31 August and received a very nice welcome at the front desk. We were shown to a table where we had a relaxing tasting experience. Paula was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeble and that seemed to be consistent with any other staff we saw or interacted with. MCC was good and although my Preferred red is normally Syrah,I found their Merlot to be superb.
We'll definitely go back to Steenberg for friendly staff, relaxing tasting room and good wine.
