South-Africa-Map.jpgThis week we talk about South Africa, one of my favorite countries. After going there in 2005, I became enamored of the wine and the country. Since then, I've been a big fan!

In this episode we hit on:

  • The history of South African wine and why it's a good bridge between the Old and New World
  • How South Africa's Price to Value ratio measures up
  • The climate, geography, and varietals of the main growing regions
  • The Wine of Origin or regional specificity pyramid
  • Some detail on the most important wine regions: Stellenbosch, Paarl/Franschoek, Overberg, Robertson, and more...and why I love Swartland and think it has major potential!

I love South Africa and its wines. If you ever get a chance to visit or even look at pictures, check it out. It's a really special place!
