Explore South Africa’s many wine regions on the wine tour

South Africa’s vineyards cover an area of just over 100,000 hectares (a little less than Bordeaux). The production is around 10 million hectolitres, which means that the country ends up as number seven in the world in terms of wine production. The acreage has been stable in recent years. What has changed is that more and more growers are now making their own wines instead of selling their grapes to a cooperative. And, of course, a big change is that the wines have become much more interesting!

There are more and more exciting wine regions in South Africa. It takes several trips there to visit them all: Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, Constantia, Swartland, Walker Bay, Elgin, Cape Agulhas, Robertson, Tulbagh, Darling, Drakensberg and many more. You have the opportunity to explore several of them on the wine tour to South Africa that starts in late February.

If you have the time, you can extend your stay in South Africa with our fantastic safari tour add-on in the Eastern Cape or with four extraordinary golf days on competition-level courses.
