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 until March 2015. The next event is scheduled for Wednesday, 14 January 2015.
Presented by Stellenbosch Wine Routes, this regular pop-up wine and food tasting event transforms the lower part of the historic town’s Drosdty Street (just off Church Street) into a culinary haven for connoisseurs and students alike.
Participating restaurants beckon visitors to sample their unique dishes at 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.”
Those who have never been to Stellenbosch should attend to truly experience those unforgettable balmy nights in the Winelands.
