The Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes celebrates the start of the festive season with the opening of a Wine Tourism Visitor Centre. You can get up close and personal with South Africa’s granddaddy of wine routes and get an insider-scoop on what’s hot and happening in Stellies.
47 Church Street is your one stop destination for a slice of the vibrant Stellenbosch lifestyle, where free wifi, good quality coffee and casual wine tastings come standard, seven days a week.
As the oldest wine route in the country, the Stellenbosch Wine Routes might be considered a golden oldie, but with all its innovative wine tourism initiatives going strong, this dynamic Winelands darling still manages to fuel all the senses.
Earlier this year the Stellenbosch Wine Routes clinched the title as Best Promotional Body at the Wine Tourism Awards 2014. More recently it excelled at the 2015 Great Wine Capitals Global Network Best Of Wine Tourism Awards held in Mendoza, Argentina, where numerous local producers raked in awards.
The Stellenbosch Winelands also consolidated its role as the country’s Gourmet and Wine Capital, claiming seven of the top twenty nominations in the 2014 Eat Out Restaurant Awards – of which four shines amongst the current Top Ten eateries in the country.
This awesome Top Ten foursome includes Jordan (rated #5), Overture (#6), Rust en Vrede (#7) and Terroir (#10), whilst Makaron at Majeka House, Tokara and The Restaurant at Waterkloof were again among the top twenty nominees.
