As a resident of Stellenbosch for three years, learning about wine culture is a must. But where to go? It can be overwhelming to look for a relaxing place to have a glass of wine or have a quick tasting of some quality South African wines. Stellenbosch is filled with wine in every restaurant and café.
Here is a list of my tried and true wine bars to pay a visit to on your stop in Stellenbosch:
Even if you do not have time to sit down for a glass of wine, Brampton, Bartinney and Montegray are sure to sell you a bottle or two after a quick taste. These bars are located in the centre of town and are all in walking distance of each other so if you are in Stellenbosch, these gems are highly recommended to pop into.
