Paul Roos Centre, Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 July 2011
A Celebration of the Vine from fine wines and culinary creations to music and the arts is the focus of the 10th annual Stellenbosch Wine Festival, one of the biggest and oldest country food and wine festivals in the Cape, which returns to the Paul Roos Centre from 28 – 31 July this year.
A joyous experience of all things epicurean, the festival showcases over 500 Stellenbosch wines for visitors to sample along with gourmet delights from top chefs, educational wine and food workshops, and some of the finest entertainment and artistic talent these famous winelands have to offer, all under one roof.
The preceding Stellenbosch Wine Week which kicks off on Friday, 22 July, offers a feast of indulgences on many of the 150 farms that make up the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes. Ideal for day trips or for a prolonged stay in the Winelands, the Stellenbosch Wine Week offers food and wine encounters at top wine estate restaurants, exclusive winemaker dinners and much more. Seating is limited at many of these bespoke events, so be sure to book early!
The Stellenbosch Wine Festival has become a tradition during the winter months and is a popular attraction for both local and international wine enthusiasts.
