{news} Steenberg supports entrepreneurship during Women’s Month

The empowerment of female entrepreneurs and startups is the bedrock of #WomenInspired, the dedicated Women’s Month initiative of Steenberg Farm in the heart of the Constantia Wine Valley.

Inspired by a proud legacy of formidable women, the present-day, women-led Steenberg management team is paying it forward in support of The Clothing Bank, an NPO empowering unemployed women to become self-employed business owners. By supporting and nurturing women from disadvantaged backgrounds to start their own sustainable businesses, The Clothing Bank helps to develop the skills and confidence needed to chart a path out of poverty and become financially and socially independent.

For the entire month of August, Steenberg is donating a portion of selected wine sales and  restaurant orders in support of The Clothing Bank. Guests can make a significant contribution by purchasing and ordering dedicated #EmpowermentInspired items. For every Steenberg Flagship wine purchased, R10 will go towards the NPO’s upliftment work, while orders of selected food items at Bistro Sixteen82 and Tryn Restaurant will contribute between R10 and R20.

Steenberg’s support of business startups culminates with a vibrant #WomenInspired Market for female entrepreneurs on the lawns of the Steenberg Manor House from 10h00 to 18h00 on Friday, 27 August. Thirty local women-led businesses have been invited to sell their innovative creations including clothing, jewellery, stationery, home décor and accessories. Spend the day browsing and lazing on the lawn with friends while tucking into delicious Tryn eats and sipping fine Steenberg wine.

The #WomenInspired programme, dedicated to the magnificence of women by supporting empowerment and entrepreneurship, encompasses every aspect of Steenberg Farm – the winery, restaurants, and hotel & spa.
