In the mid-1990s the export market opened up for South Africa. And since then we have not stopped drinking their wines. South African wine has changed a lot during these 20 years.

Some associate South Africa with simple, well-made wines. These wines, often shipped in bulk to different countries, make up quite a big part of the production (just like for many other countries). But the more interesting category of slightly more expensive and much more ambitious wines is increasing every year. It is this category we want to show you during this tour to the rainbow nation.

Here you find producers who do wonders with chenin blanc, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, pinotage and many other grape varieties. We will visit the cool vineyards of Hermanus and Elgin and the warmer ones of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. The grapes are ripe when we are there and the harvest has begun. The sorting tables will be rolling and the presses will be pressing. All of this will give you a big appetite. Luckily we can promise you amazing meals at the wineries. South African cuisine is also world famous!

You can extend your holiday, with our “add-ons”: after the wine tour with safari and before the wine tour with golf.

You can see plenty of pictures and videos from the tour on the Facebook group for the wine tour to South Africa 2017.
