Stellenbosch, South Africa

Stellenbosch, South Africa

Not far from Cape Town, South Africa’s Mother City, is the historic town of Stellenbosch. The only older European settlement in the Western Cape is Cape Town itself – Stellenbosch was founded in 1679. Not long after, the first grapes were planted, and the rest (as they say) is history.

Stellenbosch is now the epicenter of the verdant Cape Winelands region, the second-oldest wine region in the country and particularly known for South Africa’s signature grape – Pinotage. Oenophiles could spend weeks meandering from wine estate to wine estate and never tire of the mountainous scenery and luscious wines, but as an added bonus the town is also known for fine examples of Cape Dutch architecture and some of South Africa’s best fine dining restaurants.
