South Africa

After almost two years of travel restrictions, many will be itching to get back to this most beautiful part of the world and by the look of our South African wine sales, a lot of our customers have been doing some armchair travelling there already. Two oceans, two weather systems and two deep-sea currents meet at the Cape, leading to a diversity of weather between regions, and even on a given day! This means that areas such as Stellenbosch, Paarl, Elgin and Constantia which are really not that far apart, all have a propensity to succeed with different grape varieties. The wine culture is almost the oldest in the New World, being brought by French Huguenots in the years after 1685 and with them cuttings of vines including Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc. Franschhoek even means ‘French Corner’! A second, rather different form of migration has helped immeasurably; that is the wave of Europeans who go to South Africa in the winter months of a normal year, sustaining an industry of wine tourism, and then seeking out favourite wines back home in Europe.
