Stellenbosch Wine Route

The Stellenbosch Wine Route is South Africa's oldest established wine route.

The Stellenbosch wine route incorporates the wine farms surrounding the historic university town into your luxury tour of South Africa. The oldest in the country, the Stellenbosch wine route was founded in 1971 and is divided into five sub-routes; the Valley, Berg, Helderberg, Greater Simonsberg and Bottelary Hills routes. Skirting through the scenic beauty of the Hottentots-Holland Mountains, the route offers far more than just gastronomic gratification.

Though known for its fine white wine offerings, more quality red bouquets have been sprouting from the vines in recent years, with Cabernet Sauvignon being the most popular. More than 200 wine and grape producers fall within the classification perimeters of the wine route, ensuring visitors will not go thirsty on a tasting tour. From Lanzerac to Tokara, the flavors will tantalize even the most discerning wine connoisseur.

Nicknamed the ‘Eikestad’ for its dense concentration of ancient oaks, the town itself provides visitors on a luxury South African tour with a range of cultural, historical and gastronomic adventures. Stellenbosch is the second oldest town in the country, with many buildings dating back to the 19th century. The restaurants and streets cafes are some of the best in the country and merit a visit all on their own.
