Out & About: Bistro Sixteen82

Bistro Sixteen82, an innovative bistro-style restaurant and wine tasting venue, is set at the foot of Steenberg or Stone Mountain amongst the vineyards.  We visited the bistro on a perfectly gorgeous Saturday afternoon and soaked up the relaxed and stylish decor, while sampling the wines and tasting menu. Yum!
Bistro Sixteen82, named after the year in which Steenberg Vineyards was established, is a truly unique food and wine experience, not to mention the breath taking views across the vineyards, Constantia Valley, and False Bay in the distance!

One of the signature wines is the Steenberg Brut 1682 Chardonnay 2009, a sparkling wine which, according to the tasting information, has ‘aromas of fresh granny smith apples with overtones of freshly baked biscuits, and a creamy, yet fresh, mouth feel. It is a wonderful wine for all occasions, remaining crisp and refreshing on the palate without lacking fullness.’
Really good bubbly, in my books!

The tasting bar has the most beautiful handmade chandelier which twinkles elegantly above the tasters as they sip and, in our case, swallow the fruits of the vine. Guests can dine inside or outside, both venues showcasing the earthy natural decor of the bistro with the restful sound of water trickling outside.

So if you haven’t visited Bistro Sixteen82 yet, I suggest you hurry before Cape Town’s winter arrives!
