South Africa’s most anticipated wine and food festival is back, and it is more spectacular than ever. Stellenbosch Wine Routes, in association with Nedbank Private Wealth, will bring the invigorating energy of Stellenbosch to life in August when it unites talented winemakers and top chefs for the ultimate culinary showcase, The Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival presented by Nedbank Private Wealth.
Food lovers have one opportunity to experience this incredible collaboration of talent: on Saturday 3 August, in Stellenbosch’s historical Town Hall, from 17:00 to 23:00.
The beautiful Stellenbosch region is regarded as the country’s gourmet capital. Home to South Africa’s best premium wines, as well as the country’s most awarded restaurants, it is perfectly positioned to present a festival which promises to captivate all senses.
Flexing its culinary muscles, The Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival will present guests with the ‘authentic taste of Stellenbosch’. Capitalising on Stellenbosch’s remarkable terroir which shapes its globally awarded wines, only wines made from grapes grown in the Stellenbosch region, and therefore certified as Wine of Origin (W/O) Stellenbosch, will be presented by the winemakers on the day.
To these, Stellenbosch’s famous chefs, including Bertus Basson, George Jardine, Michael Deg and Michael Broughton, will provide expertly paired canapés for heightened tasting experiences.
Enabling an even bigger and better showcase of Stellenbosch’s best, is respected wealth management and financial services provider, Nedbank Private Wealth. This private banking institution is an active participant in the Stellenbosch community, and therefore a perfect partner for the festival.
According to Richard Mulholland, Head of Nedbank Private Wealth for Coastal Region, Nedbank Private Wealth has been an active financial services provider in the Western Cape for more than 185 years.
“We recently launched our Stellenbosch office, providing the community with easy access to wealth managers and private bankers who can provide expert, personal financial advice to help people meet their objectives and make better financial decisions,” said Mulholland.
“Our new partnership with the Stellenbosch Wine Routes further embeds our involvement with the Stellenbosch community and the wine industry. Our work with the wine route and its many successful philanthropic initiatives has made an enormous difference to communities within the region.”
During the winter months, various activities will be offered by participating producers, restaurants and accommodation partners of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, as part of their #VisitStellenbosch campaign.
