Conde Nast Traveller
Stellenbosch is the heart of South Africa’s wine industry, and offers travellers everything from high adventure to natural beauty. Located within a 50km radius from Cape Town, Franschhoek, Paarl and close to Hermanus, Stellenbosch is the ideal base from where travellers can explore the abundance of experiences the Western Cape has to offer. Some of our favourite regional wine destinations include:
Tokara www.tokara.com
Tokara winery is situated on the crest of the Helshoogte Pass, about 5km from Stellenbosch. Apart from award winning architecture, the estate offers magnificent vistas of the Simonsberg Mountains, False Bay, Table Mountain and the lush Idas Valley. The restaurant’s style is relaxed and calm, and chef Etienne Bonthuys' food is best described as modern South African with a heavy French influence.

Kleine Zazle is a family-owned wine farm that has risen to prominence both in South Africa and internationally, thanks in particular to its award-winning chenin blanc and shiraz. The unpretentious ambience, dressed-down decor and 'deceptively simple' menu of award-winning Teroir Restaurant on the estate has made it one of the most sought-after gourmet destinations in the Cape Winelands.
