South Africa 2023: A multitude of grape varieties in this fantastic (underrated) wine country

Share/like this post:

South Africa has many advantages as a wine country, not least a mild climate. Many different grape varieties thrive in the southwestern part of the country. Bordeaux grapes have long been popular with producers.

Near the coast, sauvignon blanc is grown with great success, and up north in Swartland, superb wines are now made from e.g., grenache, carignan and cinsault. The country also has its own grape, pinotage, which is slowly but surely becoming more and more popular.

We meet in beautiful Cape Town and continue to Elgin and Hermanus on the south coast, to Franschhoek, Swartland and, finally, Stellenbosch. This trip will give you a good idea of what is happening in the wine regions of South Africa.

We also have time for sightseeing, such as Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope. Our meals together will show us different local cuisines in the country.

It’s hard not to fall in love with this beautiful wine country.
