South Africa wine tour 2023: A magnificent wine country that is now showing all its potential

Share/like this post:

Discover the top-notch wines in this charming wine country. Visit the classics of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, but also exciting Walker Bay down the coast and the avant-garde producers of Swartland.

Many of the South African vineyards are within an easy distance from Cape Town. After an hour’s drive to the east, you reach Stellenbosch, the biggest and most famous of the wine regions. Not far from there you have Franschhoek and Paarl. We will also go a little further, to the south coast and the regions of Elgin and Walker Bay, among the trendiest of the new wave of wine regions in South Africa. Here we will stay in the small pretty town of Hermanus.

South Africa used to have a reputation for easy drinking, inexpensive wines but since quite a few years back, things have changed and the producers are now showing us the potential of the South African vineyards. We will have some great tastings as well as superb meals at the wineries. Everything is ready and set for very special experiences and memories.

It’s hard not to fall in love with this beautiful wine country.
