Stellenbosch is keeping things cool this winter with a range of seasonal itineraries and packages perfect for active travellers, wine lovers and feasting foodies alike – for a two-night’s stay from as little as R1,500 per person sharing.

Stellenbosch is South Africa’s Food, Wine and Lifestyle Capital and for the months of July and August 2019, visitors are encouraged to explore more of what this region has to offer.

“Think waking up on a historic wine farm, lunch at a busy sidewalk café, followed by an art experience or a little more adventurous cycle through the vineyards, all perfectly complemented by dinner at an award-winning local restaurant.” says Elmarie Rabe, Manager of Stellenbosch Wine Routes.

"We are extremely excited to introduce the new and all-inclusive #stellenboschiscool packages this winter.”

What’s so cool about Stellenbosch this winter?

Just a 45-minute drive from Cape Town, visitors to Stellenbosch can Eat, drink, sleep and get active with a host of activities encapsulating the bustling pulse, unique cultural mix and multifaceted offerings in this vibrant wine region of the Western Cape of South Africa, without breaking the bank.

“With daytime temperatures ranging from 14ºC to 20ºC, Stellenbosch’s winter is considered the “Secret Season” by locals. It’s balmy, sun-drenched and clear, wind-free days are ideal not only for wine tasting, but also for outdoor activities like easy walks, hiking or mountain biking in the nearby Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, ‘4x4ing’ through mountains and valleys or playing a round of golf on any one of the six golf courses in close proximity to Stellenbosch.” Explains Elmarie.

“One need not worry about the occasional rainy days either, as these days are conducive to exploring the historic town centre’s numerous museums and galleries or a great excuse to enjoy a class of Cabernet Sauvignon in front of a raging fireplace.”

“Stellenbosch is a town for all seasons, all ages and all budgets. Wine lovers can enjoy an over the top luxury break, but Stellenbosch is just as fabulous for families looking for outdoor excursions, cultural activities and affordable accommodation.” Concludes Elmarie.
