South African Wine

South Africa is one of the most prominent wine-producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere. With more than 300 years of winemaking history, it is often described as bridging the gap between the Old World and New.

South Africa’s wine industry is mainly situated around the landscape of the Western Cape. The abundance of mountains and valleys allows winemakers to produce a diverse range of styles.

The country’s signature variety is Pinotage, a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut that is rarely found in quantity in any other wine-producing country. Shiraz is widely planted also, as are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Chenin Blanc is the most-planted grape, and South African Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are popular internationally.
