South African Wines
South African wines
South Africa is one of the most prominent wine producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere. The climate in South Africa is mainly warm and dry and therefore all vineyards are close to the coast in the Western Cape. Here is a favorable Mediterranean climate, dry and warm in the summer and moderately mild and humid in the winter. Irrigation is necessary in many cases to prevent the vines from drying out. Important wine districts are Stellenbosch, Paarl, Swartland and Robertson.
Le Connaisseur carries an extensive range of South African wines, such as wines from Avondale, Bellingham, Crystallum, Stellenbosch Vineyards, Windmeul Kelder, Jacaranda, Diemersfontein, Hamilton Russell Vineyards, Gabrielskloof, Nederburg, Fleur du Cap, Lammershoek, Neethlingshof Estate, Lomond Wine Estate, Alvi's Drift, Steenberg, Meerlust Estate, Stark-Condé Wines and Wheatfield Wines.
