To call South Africa a New World country when it comes to wine is really wrong. A few years ago it celebrated the 350th anniversary of the first wine made in South Africa, so they made wine here before vines were grown in the Medoc.
But at the same time it is correct. It was only after the end of apartheid that wine really started to accelerate in the direction of quality wines. Every time we come back to South Africa, we are reminded how fast things change.
On the wine and food tour to South Africa we focus on showing you two sides of the country: first, some of the best wine producers in the country, and also to show you the incredible dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit that exists in this country. It is also an incredibly beautiful landscape. We go there just at harvest time, so there is plenty of activity in the vineyards and in the wine cellars.
We combine that with a lot of other things: Cape Town with its Waterfront and the Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula with the Cape of Good Hope, Hermanus in Walker Bay (one of the “hot” new cold climate districts) and much more. With the option to combine with it with a safari and / or golf.
Join us on the wine and food tour to South Africa in March 2017.
