It seems winter has come early this year, with temperatures dropping below what the majority of South Africans can handle before the middle of May. Cape Town’s bitter breeze might convince you to stay indoors when the weather starts to drop below 20 degrees, but the cold doesn’t have to leave you bedridden – especially when Steenberg has just launched a fabulous way to enjoy the cool mornings of May through to July.
Nestled in the Cape’s first farm and a mere 30 minutes away from Cape Town, Steenberg is rich in heritage and class. Vintner’s Breakfast has just been launched at the estate’s popular restaurant Bistro Sixteen82, calling wine lovers from across the Cape to spend their crisp winter mornings with breakfast and a glass of Steenberg bubbly in Constantia. Those who brave the crisp morning air and venture out to breakfast will be the given the choice of Chef Kerry Kilpin’s quintessential breakfast classics. Don’t forget to add a hot mug of coffee or cup of tea to keep you cosy from the inside out.
Breakfast is not complete without a cellar tour and unique wine tasting, of course. Enjoy a tour through Steenberg’s tasting room after your meal, boasting picturesque views of Cape Town’s scenic sierra, all through floor to ceiling glass walls. Your taste buds will be tantalised with their award winning Sauvignon Blanc and sublime Méthode Cap Classique. The indulgence doesn’t stop there, the estate has a few intriguing wines up their wine barrels. You’ll discover wines such as the ‘signature’ Magna Carta white blend, made only in top-notch vintages. The Nebbiolo, a local variation of a famed Italian grape, can also be found amongst this range of exquisite vinho. There’s not much of a better way to enjoy the sweeping range of Steenberg wines.
Whether you embrace the winter chill or can’t handle the slightest nip, a luscious breakfast accompanied by some wine is enough to get anyone out of their winter hibernation.
