Hardly any other (wine) country has so many interesting contrasts on offer as South Africa. The wines from the Cape of Good Hope are as diverse as the country itself. Strong red wines and fruity as well as fresh white wines are typical for the country's wine growing regions. South Africa's best vineyards are situated in the impressive landscapes of the Cape - thanks to the daytime warmth and cooling ocean winds, the grapes enjoy a perfectly long and gentle ripening period, providing the basis for one-of-a-kind wines.
South African red wines - from silky to heavy
For many, South Africa is the embodiment of overseas wines. Powerful and opulent red wines have been counted among the explicit strengths of South Africa's wine producers. Especially with the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz the wine makers from South Africa attracted worldwide attention. They produce heavy wines packed with fruit and spiciness. And in addition theres is also Pinotage, the country's homegrown star grape, finding love from wine fans all over the world for almost fifty years thanks to its silky, agreeable character.

With its white wines, South Africa is also on the rise.
Since 1973 the wine growers in South Africa have established a legal definition of their wine growing regions. The classification goes from Geographical Unit up to Single Vineyard. Most of all, climatic and geographical similarities are taken into consideration.
