South Africa’s wine industry has come a long way since the end of apartheid in the 1990s. The export snowballed. The wines were often unpretentious and pleasant. But after a while, the ambitions grew as well.

Not least, chenin blanc has gone from brandy grape to acclaimed quality grape. Our tour will take us to Stellenbosch, Swartland, Franschhoek, Elgin and Walker Bay, where we will discover the amazing range of South African wines today.

We will stay a couple of days in Cape Town. We will get to know the exciting South African cuisine with influences from both East and West. We will eat superb lunches at the wineries.

In March, the harvest has probably already started. We will discuss viticulture and winemaking with the wine producers. We will learn the specificities of making wine in South Africa. Character and quality in the wines are essential for them. But also to take responsibility socially and to protect the environment.

South Africa is well worth a wine tour.

Please note: The situation in South Africa is not yet stable. We will probably not be able to do this wine tour in South Africa in February 2022 due to the covid-19 situation. But long-term planning is fun, so let yourself be inspired by the program linked above and start planning for February 2023 now. We will announce the dates soon.
