Who are we?

Stellenbosch is internationally renowned for its beautiful environment, wine farms, street caf├ęs, restaurants, quality wines, historical buildings and its famous university. DID YOU KNOW? British soldiers who failed to show valour on the battlefield during the Anglo-Boer War (also called the South African War) were sent to Stellenbosch. This led to the use of the town's name as a verb: to be 'Stellenbosch-ed'. Stellenbosch owes its existence and name to the former governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, who established this settlement on the banks of the Eerste River in 1679, making it the second-oldest formal settlement in South Africa. Today, it's a beautiful town, characterised by oak-lined streets and whitewashed buildings, many of Cape Dutch origin (although most of the town burnt down in 1710 and was rebuilt after that date), and lies between the imposing Simonsberg and more modest Papegaaiberg ('Parrot Mountain').
