Between the 1st and 5thof July 2010, the picturesque South African countryside near Cape Town will be the location for the Stellenbosch Wine Festival.
Online PR News – 10-June-2010 – – This festival is now in its ninth year and with the World Cup coming to South Africa this summer as well, it is set to be one of the biggest yet. Africa is renowned for its wines and at the Stellenbosch Festival, there is a chance to discover and taste a huge variety of the country's finest produce; there will also be the opportunity to talk to the winemakers and discover all about the winemaking process.
Stellenbosch boasts over 140 wine farms, so there is a very good chance that you will find the right location and wine to suit your tastes. These farms and vineyards will be taking part in the festival and will be all connected via a network of shuttles so will be easy to visit.
Of course, this way, there is no concern that you will be drinking and driving. Designated park-and-ride areas can be found along the route, with the shuttle service taking visitors to the wine farm of their choice.
There will be no better way to enjoy this festival than to choose a Cape Town hotel for your stay, as this city offers the highest standards in accommodation. However, with the immense popularity of the World Cup this year, accommodation in Cape Town will be difficult to come by, and will need to be booked as early as possible.
