South Africa’s gourmet capital to host Fine Wine and Food Festival

2 min read

South Africa’s most anticipated wine and food festival is back, and it is more spectacular than ever! Stellenbosch Wine Routes, in association with Nedbank Private Wealth, will bring the invigorating energy of Stellenbosch to life in August when it unites talented winemakers and top chefs for the ultimate culinary showcase, The Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival, presented by Nedbank Private Wealth.

Food and wine lovers have one opportunity to experience this incredible collaboration of talent: on Saturday 3 August, in Stellenbosch’s historic Town Hall, from 17:00 to 23:00.

Flexing its culinary muscles, The Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival will present guests with the ‘authentic taste of Stellenbosch’. Only wines made from grapes grown in the Stellenbosch region, and therefore certified as Wine of Origin (W/O) Stellenbosch, will be presented by the winemakers on the day.  To these, Stellenbosch’s famous chefs, including Bertus Basson, George Jardine, Michael Deg and Michael Broughton, will provide expertly paired canapés for heightened tasting experiences.

“This is truly a festival to rival all other festivals. Only the finest food and wine will be served on the evening, and to ensure an exceptional experience, only a limited amount of tickets are available,” said Elmarie Rabe, Manager of Stellenbosch Wine Routes, “we therefore urge guests to book their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!”

This festival also encourages visitors to stay longer and indulge in the pleasures of South Africa’s Wine Tourism capital, with its winter wine experiences. During the winter months, various activities and tastings will be offered by participating producers, restaurants and accommodation partners of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, as part of their #VisitStellenbosch campaign. With enticing packages on offer, guests have every reason to combine The Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival with a prolonged stay!
