Steenberg Wine Estate: Sizzling Special Offers Winter 2016

Post date:


Why are you not at Steenberg Wine Estate today? Ask yourself that question, and start making plans to get there soon. Read the whole entire lengthy post below for all the details. Trust me, you wanna know.

Almost more than any other destination, Steenberg offers a sizzling hot array of can’t-miss special offers this winter. Fine food & wine, grand views, snazzy service; the whole deal, amigo.

There’s even a spa! So when all that eatin’, drinkin’ ‘n’ feastin’ has worn you out honey, just drag your weary bones off for a pamper, and you’ll be renewed in no time at all.

There’s a hotel, too, so you can even book in overnight and start all over again the next day. Come to think of it, that’s my bucketlist #1 right there: 2 days and a night at Steenberg Estate. (Sounds like the start of a racy novel, doesn’t it?)

First up: Steak & Red Wine Challenge! Of course! For these events you have to book well in advance. The Steak & Red Wine Challenge is on 23rd June, at R375 pp.

Bistro Sixteen82 chef Kerry Kilpin will serve 3 courses with a selection of Steenberg red wines. On the menu: Creamy Leek and Potato Soup with smoked trout, crusty homemade bread & spicy hummus; Slow Braised Pork Belly with butternut + sage risotto, sweet glazed carrots and tender greens and finally, a sweet flourish with White Chocolate Malva Pudding, citrus ice cream, toffee sauce and crème anglaise. (I could have that pudding for all three courses, actually. )

R375 per person includes a welcome glass of Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, 3 course dinner with red wine and gratuity. Extras to be charged accordingly.

Date: 23 June 2016 at 18:30 for 19:00. Bookings can be made with Edwina on 021 713 2211 or Spaces are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

An accompaniment of salads and fresh bread will complete the experience.
