On Safari in South Africa


Wine has been made in South Africa at least since the 17th century when Jan van Riebeeck from the Dutch East India Company was first tasked with planting vineyards at the Cape of Good Hope. After the phylloxera epidemic of the 1800’s, many vineyards were replanted with with varieties such as Cinsaut.  While they are well known for their distinctive Pinotage and Chenin Blanc grapes, their wine industry is blossoming with other varietals as well. With over 60 viticultural areas, mostly in the southwest, the country is producing stellar wines from Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and others. Join us on safari through South Africa as we learn about the wines and the colonial history that spurred their growth.
