The Western Cape of South Africa is among some of the most beautiful vineyard locations in the world - vivid green pastures tucked between granite and sandstone cliffs, sapphire-blue ocean, and the bright white edifices of 300 year old colonial homesteads. One of the larger geographical units within the South African Wine of Origin classification system, most of the nation’s wines come from this region.
