Steenberg saves water to make wine #WaterWatch

Steenberg Wine Estate has imported a sophisticated water measuring system from the Netherlands to help monitor their water needs and save water. On an hourly basis, this mechanism sends an alert as to when to turn on the drip irrigation system to irrigate the vines in the various blocks on the property.

We're being extra vigilant. We have to manage all of our natural resources.

Caroline van Scalkwyk, Marketing Manager Steenberg Wine Estate
