WELCOME

Welcome to Stellenbosch – South Africa’s most inspiring wine, food, art, sport and learning destination. The scenic Stellenbosch Wine Routes is the oldest in the country and one of the most popular destinations for local and international visitors alike. We’ll introduce you to unforgettable experiences, award-winning wine estates, celebrated restaurants and Stellenbosch’s unique and enviable lifestyle. Image courtesy: Stellenbosch Wine Routes




Stellenbosch is the ideal getaway all year round and one of the most beautiful and heritage-conscious towns in Southern Africa. The historic town centre is a living museum with a vibrant street culture. Expect friendly locals, a host of lively events - from art, music and history to outdoor pursuits, and natural scenery to rival even our finest grape.

The history of Stellenbosch and its surrounds is as full bodied, rich and complex as its most famous varietal, Pinotage, birthed from the town’s soil.

The town’s academic excellence can be tracked from the founding of the Stellenbosch Gymnasium, later the Victoria College and in 1918 the Stellenbosch University was instituted to become one of the leading universities in Africa.

The first recorded history of Stellenbosch can be traced back to 1679. Then governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, established a settlement on the banks of the Eerste River, calling it Stellenbosch (which literally translates as Van der Stel’s bush). Prior to this, the area was home to various indigenous communities.

The university has not only produced hundreds of achievers in the academic and business fields and political leaders, but also rugby Springboks, including the legendary Dr Danie Craven as well as numerous national sports stars.

The newcomers soon identified Stellenbosch as an excellent place to settle. The fertile soil and balmy climate had great potential for agriculture. Produce were grown and transported to Cape Town to supply the passing ships. The Dutch soon cottoned on to the fact that the soil was fantastic for meeting another need – the thirst of the settlers. Soon, the hills and valleys surrounding Stellenbosch were planted with vines. Experienced vintners were called in and, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, excellent quality wines were produced. Today, Stellenbosch wines still easily hold their own against other global wine producing regions. Stellenbosch’s second, but certainly not only claim to fame, is as a centre of learning. School education was introduced in 1685 and the establishment of the Theological Seminary of the Dutch Reformed Church, firmly established higher education in town.



The history of Stellenbosch has been beautifully preserved. Many of the earliest buildings that date back to 1689 still stand on the historic wine farm of Muratie. The Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture of the town centre speaks to the area’s three centuries of recorded history. These have been sensitively restored, shaded by the centuriesold oak trees that line the streets, set to stand the test of time. In 1971 Stellenbosch became the first wine region in South Africa to establish a wine route as an organised network of wineries at which the tourist could experience the product of the vine and tune into the soul of the region’s winelands. The Stellenbosch Wine Routes currently provide the largest co-ordinated network of wineries, each offering a unique cellardoor experience for the wine-lover and tourist. Today, Stellenbosch is one of South Africa’s preferred tourist destinations, renowned not only for its wines but its university, cuisine, art, sport, hospitality and culture.

red wines and sample sweeter wines last. Sparkling wines and Méthode Cap Classiques can be tasted and enjoyed between wine types to clean your palate. The tasting order will allow your palate to progress naturally. 4. Do not swallow all wines tasted! Taste and spit out in the spittoons provided. 5. Smoking is not allowed in tasting rooms and some wineries are totally smoke free zones. 6. Some wineries may serve you at tables and others may only serve at the tasting counter. Ask your tasting room assistant.

How to purchase wine 1. Most cellars allow you to buy mixed cases of wine. 2. Wine can be delivered to your door on request. Ask the tasting room assistant for delivery options. 3.

Endorsed by: # StellenboschGivesResponsibly Destitute people living on the street are a universal concern and a challenge that is not unique to Stellenbosch. Although there are many organisations that try to assist, isolated efforts can only go so far due to limited resources.

How the coupon system works:

Give Responsible is focussed on encouraging residents, visitors and students to make responsible choices when giving to street people. Research has shown that simply giving money keeps people on the street, because it is often financially rewarding for them.

2. You write the person’s name, the person for who the coupon is intended, on the coupon (to prevent reselling) and select one of the services on the coupon;

The collective aim of this project is to provide our destitute people with the necessary resources to survive, but also to assist them to access social and government services. The ultimate goal is to reincorporate them into society.

78

1. You purchase a coupon for R10 at any of the participating retailers where the Give Responsibly poster is displayed;

3. The recipient then goes to the chosen organisation to trade the coupon for services. Get your coupons at: Stellenbosch Visitor Information Centre 47 Church Street, Stellenbosch Tel: 021 886 4310
