Wine has been produced in South Africa since 1659, that is a lot longer than wines made in North America.  2059 will be 400 years of winemaking for South Africa. They have had time to figure out their terroir; to know which grapes grow best in different parts of the country.  South African wine is in general neither as austere as many Western European wines, nor as fruit forward as many wines produced in North or South America, or in Australia for example.  Some say it is the “Old World of the New World” for wine.  I like South African wines because they tend to be very good for pairing with food.  Chenin Blanc is widely grown there and this grape is known as being very food friendly.

Going to South Africa and visiting the wineries there has been on my list of things to do.  There is an opportunity for you as well if you would like to take a 5-day guided tour with Mr. Lance Berelowitz on Nov. 14-19, 2019.  I have known Lance for many years.  He was born and raised in South Africa and has a deep knowledge of South African wine, as well as wines from around the world. He helped start the Cape Wine Society and the South World Wine Society which both ran successfully in Vancouver for many years.  Below are a flyer and an itinerary for this exciting wine trip to South Africa with Lance.
