Kaapzicht Wine Estate, Bottelary, Stellenbosch
The Kaapzicht (Cape View) Wine Estate covers 174 hectares in the Bottelary Ward in the world-famous Stellenbosch district of South Africa. The vineyards stretch over predominantly north-facing slopes on fertile granite soils with a climate that favours the cultivation of quality wine grapes.
All of the Kaapzicht and reserve Steytler wines are made from grapes grown on the property - making this a true Estate. The wines have won a multitude of accolades culminating in the the Steytler Vision 2001 winning the Trophy for Best Blended Red at the International Wine Competition in London in 2004.
Kaapzicht Estate is a family affair with almost every member of the Steytler family involved. George is the viticulturist and is responsible for all the land work and maintenance. Mandy, his wife, manages the Kaapzicht Function Centre as well as the small overnighter cottage. Young Daan has taken over as winemaker from his father Danie. Their respective wives Carin and Yngvild manage the office, marketing and export sales.
