It is nice and warm in South Africa in February. Not too warm, though. We will thrive just as the vines do in this country. The grapes can ripen properly but without being overripe. The wines have acidity and structure.
To the fine climate, we can add a spectacular landscape, with stunning mountain ranges in different colours running across the wine regions.
Of course, we will also take the cable car to Table Mountain (it IS flat on the top) and admire the view of Cape Town and the Ocean. The whole tour, actually, is filled with beautiful scenery.
We will visit classic wine regions such as Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, and also the newcomers Elgin and Overberg, and Swartland. Here in Swartland, they used to make mostly bulk wines and fortified wines, but now it is a trendy haunt for a young, dynamic generation of winemakers. Really exciting.
