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.

Museums along the route offer a glimpse into the rich history of the area.
