A Town for all Seasons Stellenbosch is the second-oldest and arguably the most scenically attractive and historically preserved town in South Africa. History is reflected in the neo-Dutch, Georgian and modern-Victorian architecture that bear witness to a proud and dignified heritage. The town’s academic history has its roots in the early nineteenth century when the Stellenbosch Gymnasium, the forerunner of today’s renowned Stellenbosch University, was established. Stellenbosch is a centre for ‘clean’ industry and is a sought-after location for business, ranging from entrepreneurs to major international companies, many of which have their head office in the town. There is a village atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle surrounded by nature, yet Stellenbosch is no more than half an hour’s drive from cosmopolitan Cape Town. Endless stretches of pristine white beach are within 15 minutes’ drive.

The mild weather and unique terroir is ideal for cultivating grapes and the region has produced world-class wines that have amassed countless international awards over the years. The first Wine Route, established in 1971, comprised 17 cellars - today the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes boasts more than 152 members. Brandy, one of South Africa’s finest products, is distilled in various cellars throughout the winelands. The tranquil, friendly town offers a plethora of activities and events for young

and old, the adventurer, nature-lover, music and art-lover, and history buff. Unsurpassed scenery with views over vineyards, mountains and orchards provide excellent photographic opportunities.

In summer, jagged lines of oak trees etched against white walls transform the streets into cool, shady tunnels. Stroll along the streets and secluded lanes and soak up the atmosphere. Mingle with the locals at an open-air coffee shop or bistro, or titillate your taste buds with fine local fare or international cuisine at one of over 80 restaurants and eateries. Hike through vineyards and along mountain trails that have been the source of inspiration to poets and artists for centuries, or relax at one of the many health resorts and spas located in the town, amid rolling vineyards, or set snugly against a beautiful mountain backdrop.

Welcome to Stellenbosch

I invite you to experience the old-world charm of the more sedate and pastoral lifestyle of yesteryear, while rubbing shoulders with a bustling community, student life with the creative energy of a modern, developing town. A rich variety of experiences spoils the visitor for choice; all within easy reach and in a pleasant semi-rural setting. Stellenbosch is a place in transition where the visitor has the opportunity to experience a variety of African cultures and religions, as well as engaging in the very process of ongoing change. Stellenbosch is steeped in history, but it also boasts a world-class university and internationally recognised research and innovation facilities, designed to keep the town at the forefront of finding solutions for 21st century challenges. Stellenbosch is like the vintage wines that it is justly famous for; its many nuances will linger with you and make the desire to return, irresistible. Alderman Conrad Sidego Executive Mayor of Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch is synonymous with beautiful natural surroundings, historical buildings, and wine. Its people have the dynamism of youth with thousands of students, but also the wisdom of a long established community of academics, entrepreneurs and wine people. This mix is inspirational and, in many respects, unique. Stellenbosch360 derives its name from its aim to cover these unique features, as well as the many other faces of Stellenbosch. We strive to cover the full circle, uniting our town’s diverse people

and its friends and visitors from all over the globe, in their love of our special place. S t e l l e n b o s c h ’s i n t e r n a t i o n a l l y renowned university and other educational and research institutions give the town a vibrant and innovative atmosphere that is an important feature of its cultural and social life. We invite you to share our town with us. Enjoy its charm, taste its wine and above all, get to know us, its people. Stellenbosch 360 – where the past, present and future form a perfect circle. Professor Andreas Van Wyk Chairman of Stellenbosch 360

Stellenbosch is a town of many facets - hence the name Stellenbosch 360 - a perfect circle that continues to grow and to embrace all that this historic town has to offer. Its many achievements and accolades range from being the Food & Wine Capital of South Africa to the Sports Capital, The Arts Capital and the Conference and Wedding Capital. The little town of yore has long since shrugged off its sleepy image, and today thousands of visitors flock to Stellenbosch, not only for holidays, but for weekend breaks, business events, conferences, weddings and festivals. Choose to surround yourself with history, or propel into the 21st century in one of our fine dining restaurants and ultra-modern, bespoke businesses. Our Route 360 culture tourism activities provide an opportunity to connect with and interact with locals -arrive as a visitor and leave as a friend! Stellenbosch is abuzz with an energy unique to university towns. The diversity of visitors from around the globe and the many performing and visual artists living and working here, add to the vibe. Welcome to this simultaneously pulsating and restful town.

Village Shopping Both a university town and prime tourist destination, Stellenbosch is a shopper’s paradise, where you can enjoy a daily ‘shopping holiday’. Stroll along the oak-lined streets and lanes of the town, with its mountain backdrop, and browse through shops ranging from small local produce stores to large, modern malls. Stellenbosch has seven main shopping centres, namely Die Boord Shopping Centre, Eikestad Mall, Simonswyk Centre, Stellenbosch Square, Stelmark Square and Stone Village.

There are fashion boutiques, gift shops, bric-a-brac, clockmakers, wine merchants, art galleries, antique stores, diamond dealers, and speciality shops, where one can browse for that special something.

A

Take the time to stop off for a glass of chilled local wine or aromatic cup of coffee and mingle with the local folk at a sunny sidewalk café, bistro or pub.

Historic Dorp Street is a national monument and boasts shops, boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops and bistros, and general stores; the most renowned being Oom Samie se Winkel that dates back to 1904 and is a Stellenbosch institution. Don’t miss the local slow food market, fresh produce market or farm stalls dotted along the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.

South Africa’s oldest music school, the Stellenbosch Conservatoire, has its home in this important cultural centre, and there is a collection of galleries and museums housing national and international art collections worth viewing.

The Stellenbosch Outdoor Sculpture Trust (SOST) is a non-profit organisation that was formed in 2011. Through sponsorships and donations SOST is able to bring art which would normally only be enjoyed in exclusive galleries or sculpture parks to the streets of Stellenbosch for all to enjoy. These annual outdoor exhibitions

are now in their sixth year. Placing art in the open has the power to energize our public spaces and transform the spaces where we live, work, and play into more welcoming and thought-provoking environments. Exposure to the arts helps expand our thinking and encourages dialogue and creativity. www.sost.co.za

The association also offers art exhibitions where members can participate, workshops, art appreciation excursions and school holiday programmes for children. The office of the Association, situated next to University Museum, is open three mornings during the week, where members of the public are welcome to join.

Stellenbosch restaurants were once again awarded Top 10 status in the Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards 2015. Featured national winners are, Jordan Restaurant at Jordan Wines, Overture at Hidden Valley Wines, Rust en Vrede at Rust en Vrede Wine Estate and Terroir at Kleine Zalze Wine Farm.

Some lie snuggled amid vineyards and atop a hill, while others are perched 300m above sea-level with panoramic views over False Bay and Table Mountain. A special aura abounds within restaurants housed in Cape Dutch buildings, while those with ultra-modern interiors reflect the diversity that is dining in Stellenbosch. The Boschendal Style Award went to Equus Dine at Cavalli Wine and Stud Farm.

Help us to protect the plant and animal life by appreciating our natural heritage. The former Wild Flower Reserve was declared the Jan Marais Nature Reserve in 1980 and is the centre of local biodiversity, aiming to increase awareness of natural resources and sustainable living practices. The Stellenbosch Municipality’s vision is to provide an educational and recreational hub in the Reserve, that the public is encouraged to take ownership of. The only natural example of Swartland Alluvium Fynbos and Swartland Renosterveld left within the boundaries of Stellenbosch is found here and the 23 hectares also provides a secure habitat for small and larger mammal species, birdlife and reptiles. The vegetation is managed as two distinct sections; an extensive undisturbed natural area of 20 hectares surrounded by a managed buffer area along the perimeter. This natural area boasts more than 150 plant species.

Fauna & Flora:

Conservation Objectives:

A number of small animals find shelter in the reserve. Striped mouse, Cape Grysbok and the Cape Grey Mongoose are found here. Angulate and Leopard tortoise are common residents, and reptiles such as the Cape Cobra and Cape Puffadder have been sighted.

Jan Marais Eco Centre was launched on Earth Day (22 April 2013) to provide environmental education specifically aimed at the youth in the Greater Stellenbosch area. The Centre houses the Struik Nature Library, and presents Interactive programs according to the National Environmental Calendar.

Malachite sunbird, Cape sugarbird, Orangebreasted sunbird, Black eagle, Helmeted guinea fowl and Cape francolin are among the rich birdlife. An impressive collection of Proteaceae (proteas, pincushions, conebush) make for a wonderful display and numerous flower beds have been added, showcasing mass planting of Spurflowers (Plectranthus) and other shadeloving plants.

Recreation and Tourism: Due to its central location, the Reserve serves as an important local recreational destination that is frequently used for trail running, walking, cycling, dog walking, picnicking and general relaxation. The reserve is divided into various zones including fitness zone, arts & culture zone, discovery zone, play zone, a calm zone, and is well signposted.

The facility can also be hired for small group meetings and events. An outdoor classroom is envisioned. Students and professionals make use of the Reserve as a botanical, ornithological, entomological and geological research site.

Features: Various artworks exhibited throughout the Reserve; a Labyrinth; Shell-like sculptures; a historical Kiosk at the entrance; Outdoor gym; Outdoor chess set; and various Picnic areas. The gravel road through the middle of the Reserve is the remains of the old road from the town to Jonkershoek. Dogs on a leash are welcome.

Weddings, kiddies’ parties and environmental events are regularly hosted here. Plans for a tea garden and indigenous nursery are underway.

Opening Hours: 08h00-18h00 Free Entrance. Tel: 021 808 8160

Accommodation Few towns have such an eclectic mix of accommodation to offer the tourist, visitor or business executive.

Get up close and personal with nature in a scenic mountain chalet, a luxury guesthouse set snugly in a verdant valley or a manor house nestled amid sweeping vineyards.

Several accommodations are situated in the historic centre, or within walking distance of the town and its myriad attractions, while others form part of the scenically splendid Winelands landscape.

As part of the Cape Winelands, the Stellenbosch Wine Routes is part of the six most popular tourist attractions in South Africa. It is also connected to the global Great Wine Capitals Network.

The history of the town dates back to 1679 when a small island on the Eerste River was named “Stellenbosch” by Simon van der Stel, governor of the Cape at the time. It is, however, assumed that prior to its official naming, Stellenbosch and surrounds was home to various indigenous communities. In 1971 Stellenbosch became the first wine region in South Africa to establish a wine route, as an organised network of wineries, along which the tourist could experience the region’s famous wines and discover the magic of the winelands. The Stellenbosch Wine Routes offers a coordinated network of more than 152 wineries, each offering a unique cellar door experience for the wine-lover and tourist.

NEIL ELLIS WINES

THE PHILOSOPHY: The source of distinctive wines is quality grapes, therefore the vintner’s work begins in the vineyards. Vines vary greatly in their soil, climatic and topographical requirements and no single vineyard can satisfy the needs of all grape varieties. With this in mind, we select vineyards where individual varieties excel. Emphasis placed on caring viticultural practices by dedicated growers, together with careful winemaking, contributes to this pursuit of excellence in the art of winemaking. “A pursuit of quality, nothing less.” Neil Ellis

WARWICK ESTATE

At Warwick we have a pretty simple philosophy when it comes to making our wine. We don’t see the trick in producing amazing wine as being one single activity. Instead, it’s a series of events. It’s a combination of your surroundings, the materials you have and what you do with them. Good wine is about good grapes as well as good people. Every little aspect that goes into that beautiful glass of wine, as the end of the journey, needs to be perfect. Nothing less.
