Stellenbosch is a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa, situated about 50 kilometers (31 miles) east of Cape Town, along the banks of the Eerste River at the foot of the Stellenbosch Mountain.
It is the second oldest European settlement in the province, after Cape Town. The town became known as the City of Oaks or Eikestad in Afrikaans and Dutch due to the large number of oak trees that were planted by its founder, Simon van der Stel, to grace the streets and homesteads. Stellenbosch has its municipality (incorporating the neighboring towns of Pniel and Franschhoek), adjoining the metropolitan area of the City of Cape Town. The town is home to Stellenbosch University.
Stellenbosch is in the heart of the Cape Winelands offers wine tours, delicious food, markets, botanical gardens, awesome sceneries, and nightlife. Get close to nature by biking tours, horse riding, wine safari in Jordan Wines in an open safari-style Land Rover. As well as hike in the forest at Jonkershoek, home to Leopards, Caracals, Honey Badgers, and Baboons. On the other hand, we recommend a balsamic vinegar at tasting Rozendal Farm and olive oil tasting at Tokara vineyard.
There are plenty of wine farms with different experiences like a cupcake and wine pairing at Delheim. Another good one is Avontuur Estate, where they paired wine with fudge (dark chocolate, mint chocolate, cocoa, and caramel fudge, fig and walnut nougat and cranberry and macadamia nougat). Don’t miss Middlevlei Wine Estate for a wine blending session with Pinotage, Shiraz, and Merlot. Lanzerac Wine Estate. Combine wine with art at a luxurious winery the Delaire Graff Estate, where hey have beautiful works by some of the leading artists.
