With 170 wine producers and estates (and growing), Stellenbosch has given birth to some of the most famous names in Cape wine, including Rustenburg, Meerlust, Kanonkop and more. The mountainous region has a variety of terroirs and, as a result, produces excellent examples of many of the noble grape varieties. For the wine collector, Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style red blends from the Stellenbosch region make a significant investment, while the area is also the birthplace of Pinotage, and has premium examples of that proudly South African grape.
