Since the first vintage was bottled in 1984, Kaapzicht (Cape view – named for its view of Table Mountain) has become highly respected for its quality range of wines and good value for money and has earned a multitude of local and international awards. The Steytler Family has farmed this land since 1946 and runs their 190 hectare estate hands-on. The estate in the Bottelary Hills in the Stellenbosch district celebrated its 70th anniversary as a family farm in 2016.
Patriotism is a personal conviction. “Steytler Pinotage” is our patriotic devotion to the trials and tribulations of mastering Pinotage since its earlies beginnings right here in the Bottelary Hills. As this is South Africa’s only truly original grape, they are fixated on flaunting its finesse to the world. With this wine we pay homage to George Steytler who farmed Kaapzicht for 33 years.
