Stellenbosch Street Soirees. Enjoy fruits of the vines and gourmet cuisine during the languid summer months in the Cape Winelands when the Stellenbosch Street Soirees splash onto the calendar until March 2016. Presented by Stellenbosch Wine Routes, this regular pop-up wine and food tasting event transforms the lower part of the historic town’s Drostdy 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 streets.
Project Manager for the Stellenbosch Wine Routes Elmarie Rabe says: “Stellenbosch has a recipe for living that is hard to resist or come by. With these street parties we offer visitors a taste of our way of life through quality wines, delicious bites and live music. I cannot imagine a better way to spend a balmy summer’s evening, let alone better company to share it with.”
