South Africa is wine-wise considered to be in the New World, but it is a New World country with a long wine history. In 1655, the first vines were planted, just outside of Cape Town, so they actually make wine here for longer than in many parts of Bordeaux. The sweet wines from Constantia were world famous already in the 18th century. Today, the quality is on top again and South Africa is today a fantastic wine country to explore. They experiment with different grape varieties and plant vineyards in new regions.
The world-class South African wines are actually not that well-known, many have yet to discover them. Maybe because they are not so easy to find abroad. Come and on this tour and be one of the pioneers. Even though the wine is the centre piece of the tour, there is also some sightseeing, for instance to the Cape of Good Hope and to Table Mountain.
