Kaapzicht
A family owned and run wine estate in the Stellenbosch district, the Kaapzicht Label is proudly South African. Since the first vintage was bottled in 1984, Kaapzicht has become highly respected for their value for money, quality range of wines after having earned a multitude of local and international awards. For 3 generations the Steytler Family has been running their 190-hectare large estate hands-on: Brothers Danie and George being the winemaker and viticulturist and their wives being in charge of marketing and finances, as well hiring out a venue and a self-catering cottage. This beautiful estate in the Bottelary Hills celebrated its 60th anniversary as a family farm in 2006.



On this huge 190 ha Estate (wih 162 ha under vine) the break down is roughly 70 % red cultivars, (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Cinsaut, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Pinot Noir) and 30 % white cultivars (mainly Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, some Muscat d'Alexandrie and even less Chardonnay). All Kaapzicht wines (except the Port Wine) are certified estate wines (made from grapes grown on their own property and vinified inside their wine cellar), which guarantees consistency of quality.
