About SA Wine

Wine has been produced in South Africa for over 350 years and South Africa is today the eighth largest producer of wine in the world. The wine industry is concentrated in the Western Cape where it originated. In recent years though, the wine industry has spread to other areas of the country as well.

There is much to explore in the world of wine, from the longest wine route in the world (Route 62) to small boutique vineyards producing organic wines using horses to pull the ploughs. Wine events are held right through the year around the country and the South African wine auctions are world renowned.

International certifications are sought after by both consumers and producers alike such as Fairtrade and Organic wines. The South African wine styles themselves make for interesting reading and even a virtual tour of the production areas making up the Wine of Origin (WO) scheme can keep you enthralled for hours.
