Stellenbosch Wine Bar

"Stellenbosch wine bar focusing on the Stellenbosch Collection wines (from high-end Rust en Vrede to easy-drinking Guardian Peak). Also available is the Stellenbosch Reserve range, a love letter to the Stellenbosch Winelands and representing all seven main varietals. This means there’s something for everyone here, by the glass or bottle. Take a seat in the casual, minimalist interior, or under the oaks on the long stoep at the corner."


"Shaded by plane trees and canvas umbrellas, the sophisticated yet relaxed Qbar evokes the grand style of Quoin Rock wine estate on a smaller scale. Here you can sample all their wines (and take them home at cellar-door prices), accompanied by utterly delicious fine-dining tapas by chef Jack Coetzee. Don’t leave before you’ve had a glass of the Black Series MCC or the grappa-esque Husk Spirit."
