Christine L's City Tips

  • You can drive yourself but if you want to really enjoy the wine then perhaps an organised tour or a driver would be a good idea! There are plenty of people offering guided wine tours. If planning a lunch it is always wise to book first especially in the peak season Dec to Feb. Pick up a copy of the free guide book "Stellenbosch and its Wine Routes" available in most hotels and tourist offices.
