South African wines are grown in one of the world's most special places – with ancient soils, two oceans, soaring mountains and unparalleled natural beauty. The South African winelands are renowned for their breath-taking scenery and the wines are as full of variety as the myriad of cultures that form this Rainbow Nation. Our wine industry is known for its dynamic and innovative approach as well as its top-notch wines and young, creative winemakers. The industry is progressing and changing at speed, as the country is increasingly recognised for premium wines and world-class wine tourism.
The Cape winelands have a long history of making fortified wines, dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. This category remains consistently strong in South Africa and the selection on show today highlights the myriad of styles and premium fortified wines available from South Africa.
