In South Africa, the first wine was made in the 17th century. As the only New World country, it became known for its quality wines in Europe as early as the 18th century. The wines were sweet and came from Constantia. South Africa’s second conquest of the wine world came after 1994. Exports have increased every year since then and consumers around the globe love the wines from South Africa.
Today, South Africa is one of the most exciting wine countries. It is well on its way to completely abandoning the old focus on volume. Today, old rediscovered vineyards with, for example, grenache and cinsault are tenderly cared for.
Talented winemakers place great emphasis on elegance and character of origin. Rightly so, it is a wine country with great variation in climate and growing conditions at short distances.
When here, you will discover that they make incredibly good wines but many that you can hardly find outside the country’s borders (but here they sell at sometimes ridiculously low prices). Come with us to this beautiful country.
On the tour, we cover both Cape Town and all the most important wine districts, including a few days in one of South Africa’s most charming coastal towns.
