Sip and snack at Stellenbosch Street Soirées

Drostdy Street in Stellenbosch is transformed into a relaxed atmosphere where wine can be tasted and dishes or snacks from local eateries can be feasted on.

Experience Stellenbosch in all its good-living glory during the town’s annual Street Soirées, a series of relaxed food-and-wine tastings currently underway.

The Street Soirées are presented by Stellenbosch Wine Routes and feature an array of participating restaurants and wineries. This is the opportunity to taste a variety of Stellenbosch wines and sumptuous street-food in a social, open-air setting.

For the occasion, one of the town’s main roads is closed off, allowing visitors to snack and sip through fine local fare. Drostdy Street is also one of the historic town’s oldest and most scenic, which has made the event even more memorable.

For many of its loyal fans, Stellenbosch Street Soirées have become a way to re-connect with friends after the holiday season.

But don’t just plan to go to one. Each Soirée features different wineries, giving you the chance to experience more than a few, and to keep the good vibes going.

As always, safety is a priority. Tickets are therefore limited and health and safety measures will be in place. This includes the requirement of masks, temperature screening and sanitising on entry.

Tickets cost R150 and includes a tasting glass and 10 tokens.

The next soirées will take place on Wednesday February 9 and Wednesday February 23, and in March on Wednesday March 9, and Wednesday March 23.

Book at, or pay with cash or Snapscan at the entrance. For more information, email or call 021 886 4310.
