The popular Stellenbosch Street Soirees are back and transforming oak lined streets with food and wine culture. Locals and visitors alike will flock to Stellenbosch to sip, savour and share in the vibrant spirit of the ‘forever young’ town.
The first gathering will take place in the town’s Drostdy Street on 26 November. The bustling street will close to traffic to make way for a merry crowd to mingle, indulge in Stellenbosch wines and snack on gourmet treats by local foodies.
