Stellenbosch Street Soirees

Wine, dine and soak up the summertime vibes with an impromptu food and vino festival in this quaint Boland town


Enjoy grapes and gourmet during the languid summer months in the Cape Winelands when the Stellenbosch Street Soirees splash onto the calendar once a month on Wednesday evenings from December 2013 until March 2014. The next event is scheduled for Wednesday, 12 March 2014. 

Presented by the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, this regular pop-up wine and food tasting event transforms the lower part of the historic town’s Church Street (between Bird and Andringa streets) into a culinary haven for connoisseurs and students alike.

Participating restaurants beckon visitors to sample their unique dishes at the street stalls, while representatives from wine farms along the country’s oldest and foremost wine route offer delicious vintages to wash away those weekday blues. What’s more, live music and entertainment is scheduled to get those feet tapping as the sun settles over the town’s oak-lined roads and ways.

Events Coordinator for the Stellenbosch Wine Routes Elmarie Rabe reveals that the layout and lifestyle of the “quaint town really lends itself to street ‘kuiers’” and allows visitors to “forget about the day’s hassles and hullabaloos.”

Plus, since Stellenbosch has unseated Franschhoek as the 'Gourmet Capital of South Africa' (four of the Top 10 Restaurants in the 2013 Eat Out Awards are from Stellies), the evening soirees offer food and wine lovers a top-notch epicurean experience – and one that’s as affordable as it is fun.
