Many of us have heard the saying that Blues music can be described as a bad man feeling good. Or a good man feeling bad, for that matter. I think the same thing goes for winter in Stellenbosch: so-called bad weather that makes people feel really good.
There’s a very special appeal to the age-old cliché of snuggling up to a fire with a glass of Stellenbosch’s finest red in one hand. It makes people happy. It also makes people want to share bowls of steaming deliciousness and pretty much anything that comes freshly baked from the oven. It’s the return of “the great indoors”.
It’s good to remember that your own house isn’t the only option for an indoors retreat. Stellenbosch is geared for winter, because the locals love to celebrate it. There are so many nooks, lounges and tasting rooms in and round town that will make you wish that winter could linger longer.
