South Africa’s wines cannot be described with a few simple words. There is an incredibly variety in styles, grapes and climate, despite the fact that the wine regions are relatively close to each other in the Western Cape.
The sea and cool winds affect some vineyards; a scorching sun and a dry summer affect others. What is certain is that you can find incredibly good wines in South Africa today. We visit many of the famous wine regions and we meet exciting and innovative winemakers.
And let’s not forget the food; South African gastronomy is starting to have a reputation. It can be a cheerful braai with different kinds of meat and sausages on the grill or the Cape Malay cuisine, strong and flavourful, where curry is one of the important ingredients. A pinotage, the country’s native grape (with an undeserved poor reputation!), goes well with it.
South Africa – a great wine experience.
