Savour Stellenbosch Life at Upcoming Street Soirees

Words: Crush

Settle into the balmy evenings of the season by joining celebrated wineries at the Stellenbosch Street Soirees. A favourite for friends to catch up over fine food and wine beneath famous oaks, and wine-lovers seeking to experience the heartland of South African wine in all its glory, the Street Soirees are the place to be.

About Stellenbosch Street Soirees

The Street Soirees were conceptualised to provide visitors with a taste of Stellenbosch life, but also as an opportunity for locals to enjoy their town. Not only celebrated for its wines, Stellenbosch has established a firm reputation for the quality of its hospitality, restaurants and accommodation; classic style and urban appeal.

What to Expect

Unsurprisingly, the Street Soirees have become an annual highlight of the region. It offers enthusiasts the opportunity to taste wine and socialise in an elegant setting amongst towering oaks at the Cape’s finest time of the year. Between fifteen and twenty-five wineries will participate per event. As is the tradition, sumptuous street food from local purveyors including renowned chef Bertus Basson’s De Vrije Burger, will be on offer, along with smooth and contemporary music.

“The Stellenbosch Street Soirees have really taken on a life of their own since launching in 2011. Nonetheless, they continue to gain momentum. It’s always a treat to catch the happy surprise on the faces of visitors who unexpectedly happen on the festivities in the closed-off Drostdy Street. It’s a lot of fun and we always encourage people to stick around afterwards for dinner at one of the stunning restaurants within walking distance, or even continue the party at one of Stellenbosch’s many wine bars,” says Stellenbosch Wine Routes’ manager, Elmarie Rabe.
