South Africa - Western Cape
Western Cape is a large ‘geographic unit’ of classification, home to the vast majority of the South African wine industry. A wide variety of wines are produced here, from rich, robust reds made from Shiraz and Pinotage to fresh, flinty whites made from Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc.
The Western Cape has spectacular mountain ranges that form the Cape Fold belt. These are extremely important for viticulture across the whole region,contributing soils and micro-climates ideal for the production of premium wines.
