South Africa is today one of the most exciting and dynamic wine countries | wine tour

South Africa is a New World wine country, but with a long wine history. They celebrated 350 year anniversary as a wine country some years back. The sweet wines from Constantia were world famous already in the 18th century. The Dutchman Jan Van Riebeek planted the first vines outside of Cape Town in 1655 and four years later he made his first wine. And it has just continued after that.

There have certainly been ups and downs when it comes to both volume and quality. But today we feel that the South African wine industry has entered a new phase with much experimentation with new grapes, new wine regions and new styles. A very exciting phase brimming with quality wine. And also the politics has entered a new and more stable phase.
