South Africa has an incredible diversity of grape varieties. There is a wide range of wine styles. The vineyard surface is around 100,000 hectares, but not all grapes become wine. The brandy production is still quite important, but it has declined in recent years. Much has changed in South Africa. During our tour, we will see that more and more wine producers are passionate about making ambitious and exciting wines.
We will also get to know the South African cuisine with influences from near and afar. The spicy Cape Malay cuisine is one of our favourites.
Our wine journey begins in Cape Town. From there we will visit the magnificent Cape Peninsula. One stop will, of course, be at the Cape of Good Hope. We will visit wineries in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and also around the small town of Hermanus on the south coast, now an important place for cool-climate grapes such as sauvignon blanc and pinot noir.
We will taste lots of good wines and we will meet some fascinating people.
Come with us to South Africa in February.
