Translated as ‘Cape View’, family owned Kaapzicht Estate commands a stunning position in Stellenbosch, with magnificent views over to Table Bay in the distance. Danie Steytler Jnr (pictured above) has taken over from his father as winemaker, and continues the estate’s success with Pinotage and Chenin Blanc. The estate’s old vine, oaked Chenin Blanc known as The 1947 has had the wine trade talking since its introduction (winning a Gold medal at the Veritas awards and consistently receiving 95+ points from Tim Atkin MW), while the recently-released 2017 vintage of Steytler Vision Cape Blend has picked up a much-coveted Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition and a 5 star Platter rating.
The family take their responsibility towards their employees incredibly seriously and have a number of schemes in place to make their lives easier, including an on-site crèche, Pebbles, for ten babies and toddlers under 6. Since 2002, Kaapzicht have paid all school bills for the 42 children of employees, who also use Pebbles as an After School Club where they can do their homework and benefit from a number of extracurricular activities. In the evenings, Pebbles then turns into a centre to teach literacy to adults and offer tuition to help them achieve their end-of-school exams, sometimes many years after having left school.
