South Africa

Southafrica

South Africa is one of the most prominent wine-producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere with around 100,000 hectares under vine making it the ninth largest wine producing country. With more than 300 years of winemaking history, it is often described as bridging the gap between the Old World and New World. The majority of wines are made using New World winemaking techniques but are often more in the style of their Old World counterparts. The majority of South Africa’s wine industry is located around the Western Cape. Here, the abundance of mountains, valleys and plateaus allow winemakers to produce a diverse range of styles. Most of South Africa's wine-producing regions have a Mediterranean climate, significantly influenced by the meeting of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The country's signature variety is Pinotage, a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsault that is rarely found in quantity in any other wine-producing country.
