Cape Town - Stellenbosch
An hour's drive away lies Stellenbosch, a university town in the wine region of the Western Cape. Most of South Africa's renowned wine comes from this area. A journey along the wine route will add an amazing experience to your discovery of the country.
We suggest a visit in Stellenbosch, the second oldest town of South Africa after Cape Town, which has beautiful, well maintained buildings with typical Cape Dutch style streets. Visit the cellars of wine estates and enjoy a wine tasting.
Another recommendation is the village of Franschhoek (the French Corner), South Africa's gourmet capital located in one of the most beautiful valleys of the country. It is in this valley that the French Huguenots, including winemakers, settled in the late 17th century. Visit the museum and memorial to the Huguenots.
