Picture a vineyard under the African sun where almost every kind of grape grows in abundance.

From the valleys of the Berg and Hex Rivers to the Bushveld in the tropical north, from the foot of Table Mountain in the Western Cape to the dry desert land of the Orange River, a wide diversity of climate and soil, where man and nature combine to produce grapes of excellent quality. Imagine a place where people of all cultures and religious persuasion work together to fulfil a common goal – growing the finest grapes in the world. The story of South African grapes is the story of people and their endeavours, of opportunities, of betterment and creating a future for all those involved with the industry.
