Stellenbosch

South Africa - Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch, 30 miles east of Cape Town, is regarded by many as the red wine capital of South Africa. The Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek valleys form the Cape Winelands, the larger of the two main wine growing regions in South Africa.

The region has a Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and cool wet winters. Stellenbosch lies at the foot of the Cape Fold mountain range, which provides soil favourable to viticulture. Grapes grown in this area are mainly used for wine production, as opposed to edible table grapes.

With cool mountain slopes, breezes off the ocean helping to moderate summer temperatures and a diversity of soil types the potential for quality wines is assured.
