Stellenbosch Wine Routes
One of the top six tourist destinations in the Western Cape, the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes has been divided into five sub-routes, according to wine styles, climate and location.
The sub-routes include the Greater Simonsberg, Stellenbosch Berg, Helderberg, Stellenbosch Valley and Bottelary Hills.
There are 148 wine farms along the route, many of them historical farms with beautiful Cape Dutch manors houses, gardens, hotels and fine-dining restaurants.
The Stellenbosch Wine Route is the oldest one in South Africa, and the world-class wines produced here have contributed to creating an international profile for this Boland university town.
Museums along the route offer a glimpse into the rich history of the area.
With views of the mountains and surrounded by vineyards, many of the wine farms host functions, conferences and opulent weddings.
!Khwa ttu, the San Education and Culture Centre, 70 km north-west of Cape Town offers you the unique experience of being introduced to the world of the descendants of the first indigenous people of southern Africa.
Rising 669m above sea level, Lion’s Head, a popular hiking spot, is unmistakably part of Cape Town’s skyline. Driving on the N2 into the city centre, you can clearly see why it’s called Lion’s Head – look to your right; Signal Hill forms the rump, the space in between the body of what could be a crouching feline.
Come and experience the Bo-Kaap through walking tours, food and craft markets, home stays, home-cooked meals, Cape Malay cooking classes and much more.
Welcome to the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes, one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Western Cape.
