Student Societies
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

USWCS: University of Stellenbosch Wine Culture Society

​​USWCS logo.jpg

We are a vibrant and social society in which students can enrich their knowledge of wines, meet new people and enjoy exposure to the wine industry around us. Our society creates an awareness of wine culture by organising two events every week (that is eight events every month). Our activities include:

A wine tasting session in the evenings, called an "On Campus Tasting" because the wine tasting is hosted on campus. At this event we pour you a flight of wines and tell you more about the wines as you drink them. Such as where the grapes were grown, how the wine has been made, what the characteristics of a particular wine are and how to distinguish between different types of wines.

A tour to a wine farm. We take two busses every week to different wine farms in the Stellenbosch area. Once at the farms we enjoy some of the wines on offer, and if we are lucky, have the winemaker give us a tour of the vineyards and the wine cellar.
