From a 17th Century experimental vineyard in the Dutch East India Company garden below Table Mountain, South Africa's production of over 340 vintages has spread over a larger area.

The Western Cape is renowned for the world class wines it produces. Its varied soils and microclimates allows for a wide variety of different style wines to be produced.

The number of International Awards won by South African wines increases every year as the world delights in the quality, diversity and value of the selection of South African wine.

The focus in the main wine regions is on red varieties, both for premium labels and for fruity, easy-drinkers for which the cape's warm, temperate climate is so suitable. Cabernet, Sauvignon, Pinotage, Merlot and Shiraz are the most widely planted reds but vinters are refining their wines with more specialist varieties such as Malbec and Petit Verdot.
