Stellenbosch Wine and Food Route is the oldest established wine route in South Africa and with more than 300 wine estates in the greater Stellenbosch wine area each visitor to this vibrant town has lots to look forward to.
When the Stellenbosch Wine Route was established in 1971 many people viewed this as the start of wine tourism in South Africa.
Not only did it herald the first co-operative venture between a corporate entity and a wine region, but it also enabled a specific wine region to approach the whole topic of wine tourism on a level that had until then not been seen in the South African wine industry.
Stellenbosch is only 45 minutes from Cape Town by car, so the wine and food areas are easily accessible to everyone visiting the Western Cape Region.
The town of Stellenbosch, which lies at the heart of the winemaking area, is a gorgeous, historical university town with some of the best preserved Victorian and Georgian buildings along Dorp Street, itself a National Monument.
Its oak-lined streets are home to a number of excellent restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and galleries.
The University of Stellenbosch is the only one in South Africa with a Viticultural and Oenological department and Stellenbosch is home to one of the most modern experimental wineries in the world.
You now have the opportunity to explore the beautiful wine region and village on either a Half Day Private Tour or Full Day Private Tour.
We look forward to host you in the near future.
