Stellenbosch is blessed with some of the most spectacular wine farms in the country. Offering spectacular views, delicious meals, superb wines, fun activities and a fantastic atmosphere. Groenland Wines is part of the Bottelary Road in the Stellenbosch district, amongst several acclaimed wine farms producing some amazing red wines. Groenland meaning ‘green land’
is renowned for their spectacular red and white wines.
The Steenkamp family have owned and managed the Groenland Wines for 4 generations. The late owner and winemaker, since 1975, was Kosie Steenkamp. Kosie’s son, Piet joined the Groenland team in 2001 as assistant winemaker and viticulturist. He has since taken over the reins on Groenland after the passing of his father, Kosie Steenkamp, in June 2020.
The farm consists of 190 hectares, of which 150 hectares are under vine. Groenland produces approximately 80% red and 20% white cultivars. The vineyards deliver more than 1500 tons of grapes every year.
Enjoy a tasting in the Old Reservoir Tasting Room which was rebuild and restored in 2003. A fireplace creates a cosy ambiance, perfect for those ice winter days together with a glass of red wine to warm the hearts.
The Groenland wine range consists of four ranges namely Landskap, Classic, Premium and Steenkamp.
🔘 R45.00 (Classic tasting – 5 Classic Wines: 2x White & 3x Red)
🔘 R85.00 (Premium tasting – 5 Wines: 2x White & 3 Red Premium wines)
Meaning Landscape, this is a combination of scenic slopes and the passion of the Steenkamp family that shaped this memorable wine range. The Windmill on Groenland is a rare sight in Stellenbosch and reflects the love that Kosie Steenkamp had for nature and his Karoo heritage. The Landskap range consists of a Chenin Blanc and Shiraz / Merlot blend. The wines in the range were created with accessibility in mind. Kosie Steenkamp wanted to create a range that is affordable enough for every person from every walk of life to enjoy.
