It is only 20 years since we started drinking South African wines. But now we take them for granted. The quality of the cheap wines is reliable. And the more ambitious wines become more and more interesting. This we have noticed since coming here for the first time in 2010. More and more producers are making in exciting wines that are definitely not streamlined. We will visit several of these on our trip. The harvest has just begun but the weather is still summer warm. A perfect time to go on a wine tour to South Africa.

We will go to Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, Constantia and Hermanus down on the south coast. And, of course, we will do sightseeing in Cape Town and visit the Cape Peninsula with the Cape of Good Hope. South Africa is not only a county of outstanding beauty. It is also a very interesting country to get to know.

The wine tour to South Africa starts in late February.

If you have the time, prolong your stay in South Africa with our fantastic wine tour extension: the safari tour in the Eastern Cape.
