CAPE TOWN, South Africa
- July 4, 2014
-- Cape Town (South Africa), 04.07.2014. RED SIMON, the specialist for South African premium wines, proudly includes the exclusive top class winery Steenberg as a new partner to the range and thus extends its portfolio with excellent premium wines of international standing. Steenberg is one of the oldest wine farms and can look back on more than 330 years of success.
The estate in Constantia was founded as early as 1682 by the German Catharina Ras. Back then, the estate was called ‘Swaaneweide‘
which is why the swan is still the emblem of the winery. In the 1990s, not only the vineyards but also the manor house were completely renewed. Nowadays, you can find a luxury hotel, two outstanding restaurants as well as a wonderful golf course there. Steenberg is especially famous for its Sauvignon Blanc which is at its best in the Cool Climate region. The red wines like the Catharina Red and the Nebbiolo vine which is only rarely cultivated in South Africa are also extraordinarily good. The flagship wine is the Magna Carta from the Icon Range which was awarded as ‘Best White Blend of South Africa 2014’.
RED SIMON, the specialist for South African premium wines, has added the best wines from the Super Premium, Ultra Premium and Icon Range to its portfolio and is considered to be the only shop in Europe which offers such a vast selection from Steenberg. The wines from Steenberg are now available at www.red-simon.com
