A multi-faceted country
South Africa is often described as a Rainbow Nation offering the whole world in a single country. Indeed, the country of Nelson Mandela offers an incredible variety of landscapes and cultures: endless beaches, steep mountain slopes, exceptional wildlife sanctuaries, architectural treasures, historical cities and distinguished wines.
Among these gems, Cape Town: bright, lulled by two oceans, the metropolis known as the Mother City enjoys a scenic and lush hinterland.
An exceptional city surrounded by vineyards
Just 45 minutes from the cosmopolitan city, starts the wine region that stretches over a hundred kilometers right to the foot of the mountains, along the hillsides and in the valleys. This idyllic setting is marked by large wineries. The Stellenbosch region, the flagship production, is known for its fertile land, ideal for vine growing. Some of the best wines of South Africa can also be found in the regions of Durbanville, Franschhoek, Paarl and Constantia.
The South African vineyards are in full revival thanks to ambitious and inventive producers devoted to re-establishing quality. Majestic mountain ranges create a multitude of microclimates accentuating the diversity of soils. Hence the production diversity characterizing South African wines.
From hiking in Table Mountain to wine tasting and winery tours, gourmet surprises, swimming next to sharks, whale watching, enchanting safaris, golf ... the area is full of wonders and beautiful getaways.
