South African Red Wine

South Africa’s wine history can be dated back to 1659, when the Dutch East Indian Company were exploring the area. Kan Van Riebeeck, a Dutch surgeon, was planting vineyards to produce grapes and wine to help prevent scurvy among the sailors. Wine production is still centred around Cape Town as it was then.

There is now many vineyards and wine production in Paarl, Stellenbosch, Worcesterm Constantia, Breede River Valley, Overberg and Klein Karoo. The regions produce many quality white and South African Red Wines, which are mostly made in small quantities. Many buyers find the affordable price very appealing, as well as the unique flavours (which unfortunately you don’t find with supermarket bought South African wine).

It is easy to take a disliking to a wine if you have a bad experience, so buying tasted wine from a good online source will ensure you get the best stuff. Pinotage, a hybrid wine of Pinot Noir and Hermitage can make an amazing wine; but isn’t too good if it’s not done correctly!
