Tickets can be purchased here.

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 and wine 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 canap├ęs 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. Richard Mulholland, Head of Nedbank Private Wealth, Coastal Region, commented:
“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. 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.”


He added that global distinctive experiences, like the Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival,
complements Nedbank Private Wealth’s services: “Just like the Stellenbosch Wine Routes strives to
offer a globally distinctive experience for both locals and visitors, so too does Nedbank Private
Wealth. We provide our clients with integrated local and global wealth management advisory
services that include investment management, private banking, philanthropy, and insurance
solutions, supported by a full range of world-class digital services and tools.”
With this major partner on board, the Stellenbosch Fine Wine and Food Festival promises to be
nothing short of remarkable: “This is truly a festival to rival all other festivals. Only the finest food
and wine will be served on the evening, and to ensure an exceptional experience, only a limited
amount of tickets are available,” said Elmarie Rabe, Manager of Stellenbosch Wine Routes, “we
therefore urge guests to book their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!”

This festival also encourages visitors to stay longer and indulge in the pleasures of South Africa’s
Wine Tourism capital, with its winter wine experiences. During the winter months, various
activities and tastings will be offered by participating producers, restaurants and accommodation
partners of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, as part of their #VisitStellenbosch campaign. With
enticing packages on offer, guests have every reason to combine The Stellenbosch Fine Wine and
Food Festival with a prolonged stay! Visit www.wineroute.co.za for more.
