Stellenbosch is one of South Africa’s most famous wine growing regions and, with its stunning coastline and backdrop of Table Mountain, it would have to be one of the most scenic and recognizable cities in the world. After Cape Town, Stellenbosch is South Africa’s second oldest settlement. Established on the banks of the Eerste River in 1679, the French Huguenots arriving in the region made their way to Stellenbosch in the 1690s and began to plant vines. Today, the region has just over 250,000 acres of vines and accounts for 20% of South African wine production.
You will stay at a fabulous 5-star wine estate in the heart of the famous Stellenbosch vineyards where the first Pinotage (South Africa’s home-grown varietal) was commercially bottled 60 years ago. Immerse yourself in the rich and diverse cultural heritage that established the Cape region as one of the world’s most important wine and culinary destinations.
