The Wijnhuis was established in 1997 in the charming Dorpsmeent building on Church Street in Stellenbosch. It is a charming venue in which one can conveniently sample wines from more than fifty (mainly) local producers. From the start the focus has been on boutique wineries and the Stellenbosch region. This has expanded to include token wines from other regions as well as some of the more iconic or big named Stellenbosch wines. Uniquely one can taste as well as purchase from the wine shop or enjoy a glass with dinner in the 200 seater restaurant. The menu is Mediterranean and light with daily specials making use of the region's freshest and healthiest produce. The Wijnhuis has recently linked to the renowned SMAC art gallery in the adjoining De Wet building and has overseen the renovation of the De Wet Courtyard which is home to some of the most innovative and lively shops and cafes in the town centre. Church Street has also become a shopping hub with designer clothing shops, gift shops, jewellers and the famous Ouwe Werf, the oldest inn in South Africa. All Wijnhuis wines and accessories are available from our shop and can be consigned to local and international destinations at competitive rates.
