South Africa has so much to offer that it is difficult to know where to start. Wine-wise, the country has evolved tremendously and now finally people are beginning to realize that the country can do more than just export inexpensive bulk wine. But it has taken time and there is still a lot to do. Wine lovers need to pay more attention to the quality wines of South Africa.
There is a plethora of producers who make wines with personality. We know wine growers who search for old, abandoned vineyards, restore them and make superb wines from these old vines. There are so much ambition and pioneering spirit.
And after a few years of severe drought, the dams in the Western Cape, where the vineyards are located, have now been replenished and everyone is looking forward to a good season up to the harvest in early 2020. When we get there, the producers will be in the starting blocks for the harvest.
We will visit Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Hermanus down by the coast and, of course, also magnificent Cape Town and Table Mountain. We will enjoy high-quality meals, most of them at the wineries. South Africa is worth a trip!
Go there with us this winter!
