Inaugurated last year, Wine Town Stellenbosch features a diverse series of events and experiences intended to offer something for everyone. These include live music performances, farm walks, inspired meals, and tutored tastings – from formal to informal occasions – all featuring wine as the main attraction.

One of the main attractions of Wine Town Stellenbosch 2022 will be Stellenbosch Wine Festival, a two-day showcase of local wines to be held in the Stellenbosch Town Hall. Held on the Friday and Saturday (5 and 6 August), the festival is ideal for visitors wanting a snapshot of the wine scene.

Stalls run by the region’s top wineries will offer tastings, from 16:00 to 20:00 on Friday; and, 14:00 to 18:00 on Saturday. Over 200 wines will be represented while food prepared by renowned chef Bertus Basson will be available too.

Furthermore, the event has curated tastings focussed on special varieties and vintages.

There will be a diverse range of participating wineries that include legends and favourites such as Spier, Alto, Neethlingshof, Middelvlei, Hidden Valley Wines, Morgenster, Lanzerac, Villiera, Remhoogte, Groenland, Boschkloof, Peter Falke wines, Hartenberg, Cavalli, Kaapzicht and Zevenwacht, as well as new wine route members Weltevreden Estate / Bertha Wines and Compagniesdrift.
