Wine Cultivation in South Africa
What makes wine from South Africa so special? South Africa's unique geographic and climatic conditions make it ideal for growing exquisite wines. The maritime climate and the cooling sea breezes allow the vines to ripen optimally, while modern and careful cultivation methods as well as cleverly applied cellar techniques bring out the best in them. The wines are matured either in steel tanks or in wooden barrels made of French, American or Hungarian oak.
