This year Stellenbosch Wine Routes, the country’s pioneering wine route, is raising the bar with a more fine-tuned and focused grapes-gourmet-and-gallery affair, by flawlessly pairing the finer things in life in one holistic extravaganza.

“Our focus this year is on creating an unbelievable sensory journey to surprise and delight our guests. Stellenbosch’s best wines, finest chefs, freshest music, rarest art and edgiest catwalk fashion will be uniquely and cleverly paired to provide a carefully curated taste of the Stellenbosch lifestyle – using all the senses!” shares Annareth Bolton, CEO of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes.

Only the very top winemakers and chefs from South Africa’s premier wine region will travel to Jozi for the event. The carefully selected wines on offer were chosen through a strenuous selection process and abide by the wine route’s high quality standards. In keeping with the event’s pairing theme, each wine will be teamed with a signature dish in a unique ambience. And each will be delivered in a unique ‘attraction’ to complete the experience - from music to an intimate fashion show or even a private one-on-one session with a leading art expert.

This year’s chef line-up includes five of the finest maestros from the Stellenbosch Winelands, all set to pair their gourmet creations with the stellar wines for an unrivalled culinary lifestyle experience. They are Michael Broughton of Terroir, Bertus Basson of Overture, George Jardine of Jordan Restaurant; Christiaan Campbell of Delaire Graff Estate, and Grégory Czarnecki of Waterkloof Restaurant.
