Graaff-Reinet Stoep Sitting - Karoo Living at it's Best
Stoeps in Graaff-Reinet are a big feature. Walk along many of the streets in the historical area of town, and you will find old Victorian, local Karoo, and Cape Dutch buildings with stone verandas that are a great place to sit and enjoy company, or watch life go by on your own.
The Graaff-Reinet Stoep Tasting Wine Festival which first took place in 2014, incorporates stoeps to a large degree. At the festival, groups of wine tasting enthusiasts enjoying the selection of wines on offer can be seen, often making use of the space available on stoeps, to savour the aroma and taste of the many vintages brought to Graaff-Reinet by wine merchants from across South Africa. And a heads up, it's not only wine that features at Stoep Tasting. Other types of beverages and delicious food are to be had, provided by different vendors, all aiming to complement the drink of choice for Stoep Tasting patrons.
Many other things to do, and interesting activites are waiting to be explored in Graaff-Reinet. From marvelling at the architecture of the Groot Kerk, to visiting the Valley of Desolation for spectacular views over the town, to enjoying bite to eat at one of the busy restaurants, you are sure to find something to your liking.
