Stellenbosch Street Soirees


2 min read

Drostdy Street is the place to be on Wednesday, 27 November as Stellenbosch’s popular street parties make a highly-anticipated return to the winelands’ summer calendar. 

Held every second Wednesday between November and March, the pop-up Stellenbosch Soirees promise wine and food experiences which capture the very best of life in the region: great wine, brilliant company, food, music and a laidback country vibe.     

Proudly presented by Visit Stellenbosch in association with Stellenbosch Wine Routes, each soiree celebrates a different selection of wine cellars, with stalls, food vendors and live music adding to the festivities.

Elmarie Rabe, Manager for the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, says: “Stellenbosch’s midweek Soirees are a highlight on our calendar. Drostdy Street is closed off to traffic, creating a safe and vibrant space for people to enjoy our historic town.”

“We have a wonderful mix of local wines and delicious food . Surrounding restaurants, galleries and shops throw open their doors, which makes for a magical atmosphere. It’s a great way to spend a balmy summer evening – and probably the best way for visitors to experience the spirit of the winelands.”

Entry to the event is free, but R150 buys you a tasting glass and 12 wine tasting tokens, which can be used to sample some of Stellenbosch’s finest vintages (additional tokens are on sale on the night). Or buy a bottle to take home or enjoy with your meal when you go for dinner at one of the local restaurants after the soiree.
