The Stellenbosch Wine Route came into being after a visit to the wine region of Burgundy by Frans Malan of Simonsig and Niel Joubert of Spier. They approached Spat Sperling of Delheim with the idea of a Wine Route and together, through sheer determination and commitment, the three friends took on the established legislation and red tape and the now world famous Stellenbosch Wine Route was launched in April 1971
From its pioneering days back in the 70’s, to the most visited and most popular Wine Route in the country, the Stellenbosch Wine Route undeniably offers you the biggest variety of Wine Estates in South Africa with over a 150 cellars to choose from. Today the Stellenbosch Wine Route is subdivided into 5 district routes, each of the five routes are along the major arterial roads leading out of Stellenbosch to make it easier for visitors to travel to and by doing so, keeping travelling times and distances shorter.
