Stellenbosch nominated as the ‘International Wine Region of the Year’

Stellenbosch has been nominated as the ‘International Wine Region of the Year’ for the 2019 by Wine Enthusiast Wine Star Awards in San Francisco! And Majeka House is right in the heart of this beautiful wine region - the perfect base from which to sip and explore.

“Stellenbosch, both as a South African wine region and town, straddles the Old World and New World. Grapes were planted shortly after Simon van der Stel founded the “City of Oaks” in 1679, and visitors today traverse breathtaking mountain passes past vine-covered foothills and 17th-century Cape Dutch buildings. The wines today are deep-rooted but express modernity. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Syrah are flagship international varieties for the region, while high-quality Pinotage and Chenin Blanc illustrate the region’s heritage. Stellenbosch’s winery restaurants are as good as any in Napa, and boutique hotels and guest houses define Stellenbosch’s country-chic vibe.”
