The Steenkamp family are the owners of this piece of prime viticultural land. They are the third generation who, over the past seventy years, has developed the farm to its present status as a premier red wine producer.

As the Bottelary area is especially suitable for the cultivation of red grape varieties, Kosie Steenkamp has undertaken extensive plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Pinotage, Merlot and Shiraz.

Kosie's excellent labour relations, based on the caring attitude towards his staff, have resulted in a content workforce.

Since 1973, Kosie and Heléne are the owners of Groenland. Kosie is also the winemaker and Heléne runs the catering facility. The Steenkamps are secure in the knowledge that their commitment to producing premium wines will continue in the future. Their son, Piet, who studied agriculture to broaden his knowledge of viticulture, management and winemaking, has joined the farm in 2001. He is married to Louise and they also live on Groenland. Piet is the assistant winemaker and also responsible for Groenland’s international wine sales.

Nico Stofberg and Suret Roest are also part of the Groenland team. Nico is the farm manager and Suret runs the tasting room. She is also responsible for all local marketing, wine shows and administration.
