More about Catharina Ras

The pioneering and courageous Catharina Ras, or Tryn, was Steenberg’s founder. She built a fruitful life in the Cape against great odds and misfortune when three of her string of five husbands succumbed to the African landscape in a series of unfortunate mishaps. Regardless, her indomitable spirit never wavered.

Tryn leased the land at the foot of the Stone Mountain in 1682 and transformed it into a flourishing farm with her fresh produce receiving particular praise.

Today, Steenberg Farm continues to honour her name with the opening of Tryn and dedicating two signature wines to her: the flagship red blend, Catharina, and the prestige cuvée, Lady R Méthode Cap Classique.
