Summer at Steenberg – all the eating, playing and drinking…


FROM wine specials and cocktail happy hours to breakfasts, lunches and dinners at two restaurants; from spa pampering and world class golf to a spectacular New Year’s Eve dinner, Steenberg has pulled out all the stops to ensure a sizzling summer.


Make festive get-togethers fun and easy this season with Steenberg’s all in one Summer Party Selection of delicious wines and bubblies complete with recipe cards for easy entertaining. This joyful food and wine collaboration takes care of all the nitty-gritty aspects of hosting an inspiring summer party.

The Summer Party Selection comprises two bottles each of Steenberg’s most beloved wines from the Constantia Valley – Steenberg Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc and Steenberg Merlot. The wines are paired with some of Steenberg executive chef Kerry Kilpin’s recipes ideal for a dinner party or to serve canapé-style in a more relaxed setting on the patio or by the pool.

For the vibrant Steenberg Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, Kilpin has come up with sweet and savoury delights to get you into the party mood. Her chevin galette is a perfect appetiser while the passion fruit tart is a mouth-watering dessert. The ever so moreish spicy fried prawns are a winner with crisp and refreshing Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc either as a no fuss canapé or starter. For the Merlot, Steenberg’s most popular red wine, Kilpin has chosen harissa lamb ribs that can double up as finger food or a main course.

All these recipes are easy to follow and will leave your guests in awe of your culinary skills.

The Steenberg Summer Party Selection is R960 for the six wines and recipe cards at the Steenberg Tasting Room or online for delivery to your door.
