Wine has long been the source of many a philosopher’s ruminations – Rumi is rumoured to have said, “Either give me more wine or leave me alone”. But even if you’re a teetotaller who prefers your water before it’s turned to wine, you simply must visit the beautiful winelands of South Africa.
Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, Robertson, McGregor, Wellington and Constantia are some of the best-known wine growing regions in the country. Each wine growing area has their own unique appeal – their own terrior that gives their wines a distinctive taste and particular bouquet.
South African winemakers, from big cellars to small, boutique cellars produce wines that are both world-renowned and award-winning.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Chenin Blanc, Pinotage and more are all created in beautiful surroundings. Set amongst these vineyards, you’ll find 5-Star accommodation that combines rural tranquillity and luxurious living.
Mountains, rivers and fields of lavender form the backdrop for winemaking alchemy.Between the fine wine and the stunning views, we’ll forgive you if you don’t want to leave.
