Wine Routes

Stellenbosch is regarded as the Capital of the Wine Economy in South Africa, even though the biggest wineries in the country are nowhere near there.

Take a look at at this:

There are many ways in which to experience the Wine Country.

If you are a collector, we focus on wines that will last longer.

If you have an interest in our quirky local grape called PINOTAGE, we can spend a day focusing on that.

And then if you like PAIRINGS, we can offer you wine pairings with any of the following:

Chocolate

Olive Oil

Cheese

Cupcakes

Nougat

Ice Cream

And if you don’t want to tie yourself down to a fancy lunch, then we can suggest a Cheese and/or Meat Platter at many wineries, to fill you up as you taste your way through the day!

There are some AMAZING award-winning restaurants in the Wine Country so you should consider at least ONE for your lunch.

The town of Franschhoek is a magnificent valley with high mountain walls, and many different micro-climates, creating perfect conditions for a wide spectrum of quality wines.   This area was settled by French Huguenots (Refugee Protestants) over 300 years ago so many of the Estates carry the French names awarded to them by the settler families.
