New dining experience: The Bus Stop @ Stellenbosch Vineyards

It’s big, it’s bold and it’s yellow! The Bus Stop has arrived at Stellenbosch Vineyards with the promise of serving the best burgers, pizzas and waffles this side of the R44! What’s more, this casual eatery is situated in the centre of the pond on the Welmoed farm, sporting a bright yellow 1980 Bedford bus as the heart of the restaurant. This unique concept gives a twist to the cuisine sensation that is the ‘food truck revolution’, with the bus refurbished into a bar serving and highlighting the innovative Infusions, the farm’s heritage brand Welmoed and the home brand Stellenbosch Vineyards. The menu features craft beer, joined by wood fired pizzas and burgers from the open-air kitchen.


Fire up winter with a hearty, traditional meal at Cape Wineland’s icon estate      Reconnect with the alluring history of the Cape this winter by joining Delheim, the renowned Stellenbosch wine estate, for its special Cape Malay lunches in May. Known for its spice and warmth, the Cape Malay dishes will be the perfect foil for the cold winter days that lie ahead.



Lanzerac Hotel & Spa reopens Spa: As part of a large-scale refurbishment of the grand and historic Lanzerac Wine Estate, the Lanzerac Spa has been completely rebuilt and reimagined to offer a Winelands retreat experience with a distinctly luxurious feel. Nestled against rows of lush vineyards, the new Lanzerac Spa boasts six therapy rooms, four mini manicure and pedicure treatment areas, two relaxation areas, a Rasul chamber complete with sensation showers, an in-door heated swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms, and a mist room to help guests cool down.
