ABOUT


Winelands Art - Sips & Sights



While Stellenbosch is best known for its wine and 300-year old history, it certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to its art. The WINELANDS ART: SIPS & SIGHTS day tours give visitors the opportunity to explore a few of the scenic wine farms around Stellenbosch, taste extraordinary wines and discover firsthand the best spots for a day of culture and beauty.

These gems include public and private art collections in art galleries, sculpture gardens, museums and art studios.


Complementing art with top-notch wines


Join us for a lovely day in and around Stellenbosch to enjoy and celebrate nature, wine, food, beauty and creativity! There is the opportunity to meet some of the artists face to face, to view their workspace and see them at work in their studios. Safe transport between venues is provided – as well as informed art curators to guide us through the works of art on display. Also includes all wine/gin tastings, bubbly/lemonade and coffee/tea on arrival. Excludes lunch and gratuity.
