The Stellenbosch region takes its name from the town of Stellenbosch, a university town famous for classic Cape Dutch architecture and picturesque oak lined avenues (nicknamed Eikestad or City of Oaks). The town is the second oldest European settlement in the Western Cape after Cape Town and the region is home to some of the finest restaurants and wineries in South Africa. Its in this region that you’ll be able to taste local wine, cheese and biltong (spiced, cured meat…a local delicacy).
