As the oldest wine valley in South Africa, Stellenbosch is a hub for wine culture, beautiful Victorian buildings and outdoor activities in the Western Cape
With more than 200 different wine and grape producers, the Stellenbosch Wine Valley is known globally for its excellent vintages. Its various wineries offer not only tastings, cellar tours, and well-priced wine sales, but also excellent restaurants, picnic facilities and a sampling of cheeses or chocolate to accompany the array of reds, whites and sparkling wines. At the heart of the valley, the town of Stellenbosch is appealing, with streets that are lined with Victorian buildings and large old oak trees. One of the country’s best universities is located here and anyone can take a stroll around the campus.
