Our wine tour to South Africa starts at the end of February. It is still summer in South Africa, but not too hot. The harvest has just begun or has maybe been going on for a week or so. You will see many different harvesting activities. The picking in the vineyard, destemming, fermentation, pumping over, pigeage and other things in the winery.
The tour begins in Cape Town and from there we continue to the wine regions. The distances are quite short so we will have time to see several of them: Walker Bay, Elgin, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl. You will notice that a lot has happened in South Africa in recent years. Today there is a strong ambition to make terroir wines, quality wines with personality and character. Often great wines. Even if you have already enjoyed many a South African wine you will discover something new and exciting, new trends, a variety of styles.
