South Africa’s wines have come incredibly far in the last 25 years. Initially, South Africa was associated with pleasant but unpretentious wines. These wines still exist; maybe they even dominate. But on this tour, we will show you what ambitious producers can achieve in this incredibly beautiful wine country.
The landscape is unforgettable. In February, the grapes are ripe. Some producers have already started to harvest; others are still waiting for a bit more ripeness. It’s a great time to be in the vineyards.
We start with a few days in Cape Town. We go up to Table Mountain and admire the view of the city and the sea. We enjoy the sunset and get acquainted with the Malay cuisine before moving on to the wine regions.
We go to Elgin and Walker Bay on the south coast and then on to Franschhoek and Swartland, further north. We end in classic Stellenbosch, a lively university town with pretty Cape Dutch-style houses.
