More info about Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch lies in a fertile valley alongside the Eerste river, and is South Africa's best preserved and oldest town ( Cape Town being a city), established in 1679. The town is named after the Dutch East India Company governor Simon van der Stel, who recognised its suitability for wine production. He began planting oak trees and his legacy is a town affectionately known as Eikestad (The town of oaks) with over half of South Africa’s wines produced here.
Like any university town, Stellenbosch has an academic atmosphere and the beautiful buildings housing research centres and faculties is testament to this. Being in a valley, the weather in Stellenbosch is temperate; warm in summer and moderate in winter.
