In February it is a warm and pleasant summer in South Africa. But it is rarely too hot. Which makes the climate ideal for quality wines. The wines will get balance and structure. Often, South African wines are compared more with European wine than with New World wines.
To this perfect climate, we can add spectacular scenery, with several mountain ranges that both criss-cross the wine regions and act as a backdrop to the vineyards. We start our journey with a well-known mountain, the Table Mountain. From there we have a magnificent view of Cape Town and the Ocean. A good start to the journey. We will visit classic wine regions such as Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, but also newcomers like Elgin and Overberg.
Our lunches are at the vineyards which give us many opportunities to contemplate different food and wine combinations. In recent years, South African cuisine has gained a very good reputation. You will understand why on the tour.
