South African grapes
England might be out of the world cup but the South African spirit of this summer remains strong.
Beer is the British women's tipple of choice for watching football but now we don't have to do that anymore we can indulge our passion for cool summery wines! Why note raise a glass of South African vino to the Germans who saved us another few weeks of footie obsessed husbands and boyfriends.
Over the past 15 years, vintners have made great strides. Better winemaking techniques and a wide range of grape varieties including all our international favourites (as a nation, we drink more South African wine than French) means the sunny Cape Winelands with their cool ocean breezes are at the top of their game.
