South Africa

The Dutch East India Company established a refreshment station at the Cape of Good Hope 1652 and planted the first vines. South African wine quality has never been better than it is in 2021 - support SA producers by buying and drinking their wonderful wine..

Having just about recovered from a three year drought, the South African wine industry was hit by government COVID restrictions including a ban on alcohol production, sales and export earlier twice in 2020 and again earlier this year. Can you imagine this happening in the UK??!
