Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch is located just 55 km to the east of Cape Town. Stellenbosch is in a hilly region of the Cape Winelands and is sheltered in a valley at an average elevation of 136m, flanked on the west by Papegaaiberg. The soils are dark alluvial to clay soils and combined with the well-drained, hilly terrain and Mediterranean climate. Summers are dry and warm to hot, with some February and March days rising to over 40 °C . Winters are cool, rainy and sometimes quite windy, with daytime temperatures averaging 16 °C. Snow is usually seen a couple of times in winter on the surrounding mountains. Spring and autumn are shoulder seasons and daytime temperatures hover in the 20°C’s.
