Wine & beverage
In 1659 South Africa’s rich wine history began at Groot Constantia, and the Cape Winelands has remained the largest and most awarded wine-producing region in the country. On these grand estates stretching as far as the West Coast and Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, world-renowned wines are paired with gourmet cuisine and locally made delicacies like biltong (cured meat) chocolate and cheese. South African sparkling wine, Méthode Cap Classique, made in much the same way as French Champagne, can be tasted on a number of estates as part of a unique tour.
Wine aside, the Cape produces some of the most talked-about craft beer in the world. Visit a handful of the breweries responsible for putting South Africa on the beer map. For coffee connoisseurs, Cape Town’s scene consistently comes out tops on travel blogs with our very own Truth Coffee recently voted the best coffee shop in the world.
