The popular Stellenbosch Street Soirées have started the summer season this month, drawing visitors from far and near to celebrate the wineries of the region.

A favourite occasion for friends to catch-up over fine food and wine, beneath the oaks, and wine-lovers seeking to experience the heartland of South African wine in all its glory, the street soirées have quickly become a not-to-be-missed affair. It offers enthusiasts the opportunity to taste wine and socialise in an elegant setting among the famous towering oaks throughout summer.

In keeping with tradition, there is sumptuous food from local vendors, including the renowned chef Bertus Basson’s De Vrije burger, with smooth contemporary music as a backdrop. Held on Wednesdays, the first street soirée took place on 9 November, and forthcoming ones are on 23 November, 7 December, 18 January, 1 and 15 February, and 1 and 15 March.

Each evening’s activities run from 18:00 to 20:00, with 15 to 25 wineries participating.

Tickets, at R170 per person, include a glass and 10 tasting tokens. Book your place online via Plankton. For more information, email info@wineroute.co.za or call 021 886 4310.
