Cape Town, which is one of the most beautiful cities in South Africa, is located at the southern tip of Africa. It is the center of a fascinating wine growing area. Famous wine regions such as Constantia, Stellenbosch, Olifants River or Paarl extend around the charming cape region.
South African winemaking has an old tradition. In South Africa, the first wine was crafted from grapes in 1659. Yet, the quality-oriented winemaking that can be found at the Cape today has only been established within the last few years. Meanwhile, South Africa´s winemakers have invested in modern technology and compare favourably with their international competitors.
High class grape varieties such as Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc gain popularity all over the world.
