Stellenbosch Street Soirées are back with elegant evenings with delectable wine & food

The sunny season is back and along with it, the Stellenbosch Street Soirées, an ever-popular series of food, wine and live music beneath the wine capital’s famous oak trees. Stellenbosch Street Soirées are undeniably the social events of the year!

This year’s pop-up series on Drostdy Street takes place on specific days from November to March with the first Soirée happening on November 22.

“As many have already discovered, our Street Soirées are the occasion to be immersed in the Stellenbosch lifestyle,” says Elmarie Rabe, manager of Stellenbosch Wine Routes and organiser of the event. “With the hours of each Soirée limited to between 18:00 and 20:00, they’re ideal for enjoying pre-dinner drinks with friends ahead of a meal at one of Stellenbosch’s many fine restaurants.”


Not only home to the most awarded wineries in the country, Stellenbosch is also consistently recognised as South Africa’s leading culinary destination.

As many look forward to every year, the Stellenbosch Street Soirées unfold as a vibrant sundowner occasion centred on mingling, tasting and snacking. A portion of Drostdy Street is closed off from traffic and decorated in elegant festive style.

Food is supplied in the form of stalls selling light bites while each evening also features a different selection of wineries. This means that wines available throughout the series will change.

Added to the setting is the all-important ingredient of live music and with that, every evening is perfectly made!
