Wine

A history in wine

The town of Stellenbosch dates back to 1679 and the first vineyards were planted in 1679.  The Stellenbosch Wine Route was founded in 1971. Now known as the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes, it is divided into five sub-routes and is the second-oldest wine producing region in South Africa, world-renowned for its award-winning wines.

More than wine tasting

With over 200 wine producers in the valley, this is truly the pulsating heart of the country’s wine industry, where both connoisseurs and novice wine-drinkers can equally enjoy the fruits of our vines.

Many of our cellars offer wine-tastings, tours and cellar door sales (many will ship wine right to your door), and some have restaurant and picnic facilities, accommodation, gift shops, art galleries, amphitheatres and even wildlife experiences.

Stop for wine-tasting, take a walk through the vineyards, go on a wine safari, blend your own wine and make a personalised label for your Cape Blend, or learn about the art of wine-making from the perspective of a local farmer.

Read more about the exciting and entertaining experiences that the Stellenbosch Wine Routes have to offer on the Stellenbosh Wine Routes Blog.
