The white chenin blanc is the most widely planted grape in South Africa. They have always made a lot of white wine here, one reason being that they had a significant brandy industry. Today, not so much chenin is distilled. Instead, it is used for some of the country’s best wines. South Africa has discovered this grape’s potential and thus has also stopped calling the grape by its synonym steen, as they did before.

Many other grapes have been rediscovered in South Africa by creative winemakers who want to give wine lovers unusual and exciting experiences.

The South African wine regions are all located in the Western Cape, at a relatively short distance from Cape Town. We start our tour there, and then we go on to the south coast, to Walker Bay, further up to Franschhoek and Swartland, and we end in Stellenbosch. These regions will give us a good idea of what is happening in South Africa’s wine industry today.

We will get to know the local gastronomy, quite diverse and very exciting, and we will have some superb lunches and dinners together. We will also have time to enjoy the landscape and the occasional sunset by the sea.

Wine tour to South Africa, 9-18 February 2022.
