The Cape Winelands Region:

With its roots dating back to over 350 years ago, the wine industry in South Africa has grown to become one of the world's most popular wines. Our winemakers in the Western Cape are creating well-structured and sophisticated wines and adding a Capetonian twist on the classic international varietal. South African wine has something for everyone from bright, fresh sauvignon blanc to spicy shiraz, velvety, smooth merlot, the butteriest chardonnays, plum-tastic pinotage and intoxicating MCC sparkling wines and the most-planted grape variety in South Africa is Chenin Blanc, often called Steen.
