The wine regions of South Africa are predominately in the Western Cape, and although this represents a small area of the country as a whole, within this area the range of microclimates, mesoclimates and terroir is incredible. Resulting in an almost infinite range of styles of wine from crisp, aromatic Sauvignon Blanc to south Africa’s native red, Pinotage. It is therefore no surprise that South Africa is considered one of the most fascinating wine country’s to explore. Our South African wine region profiles provide an overview of the regions, their history and diverse terroir. Enjoy!
