South Africa wine tasting and food pairing.

Not many people know that South African wine has a history dating back to 1659.

Almost 20 years since the fall of the regime, South Africa has restored its markets and carved out a reputation for making very good everyday wines at affordable prices in addition to their high-end icons. Key to that was South African winemakers moving away from the ultraconservative bulk-blending approach that had been their long-standing tradition. The soil and heat create a traditional heavy, alcoholic, “porty” style in South African wines. The task of the last 20 years has been to restyle things to compete with international preferences, to offer lighter, fruitier, more subtle wines.
