Welcome to the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes, one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Western Cape. The original Stellenbosch Wine Route was founded in 1971 and has been promoting its members for more than 30 years.

Today the new Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes represent more than 200 wine and grape producers within the boundaries of the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin classification. The Wine Route is divided into five sub-routes.

Our new, improved MAPS will guide you on your tasting tour. You may start at any cellar of your choice and include as many as you like. The entrance to each cellar is clearly signposted with the Wine Route logo.

Daily wine tasting, cellar tours and sales are offered at most cellars and many of these have restaurant and picnic facilities. Some cellars offer tasting by appointment only. Please refer to each of the member listings to view the facilities offered by individual cellars. Wine can be purchased at the cellar door. Your purchases of any given quantity can be delivered locally or internationally.

We have been preparing for your visit for more than 320 years! Visit us now and experience the finest wines, warm hospitality and memorable moments. The Greek philosopher Plato remarked : 'Nothing more excellent or valuable than wine has even been granted by the gods to man'.
