South Africa in November! Fantastic white wines (and red!), whale watching and much more | wine tour

Share/like this post:

For a long time, the white grapes dominated in South Africa’s vineyards. Much of these white wines were distilled into brandy. Now it’s different. South Africa is now a very exciting wine country for white wines.

Chenin Blanc (formerly called Steen) is a classic “South African” grape and although its surface has decreased since the late 1990s it is still significant. And some delicious wines are made from this grape. And also from Sauvignon Blanc from the cool south coast of Western Cape, Chardonnay, Semillon, Roussanne, Viognier, Riesling and more.

There is of course also a wealth of outstanding reds. In fact, South Africa has around 100 different grape varieties, white and red. That is a lot considering the country’s total vineyard surface of 100,000 hectares.

In South Africa there is a great variety of wine styles and breath-taking landscapes. Come and enjoy all this on our wine tour to South Africa in the fall of 2018. We will also have time for whale watching in Hermanus on the south coast!

The South Africa wine tour will take place in November 2018.
