A balmy Mediterranean climate makes the Western Cape of South Africa an ideal wine region. The first Europeans to settle here were quick to realise this, and vineyards began appearing shortly after their arrival. Unfortunately these first settlers were Dutch and had limited knowledge of the winemaking process.
However it wouldn’t be long before French Huguenot refugees arrived on the scene, bringing their native expertise in wine production with them. Regions like Stellenbosch, Constantia and Paarl trace their roots back to that early flourishing of wine production and have become world famous over the years.
