The South African wine country is for the most part set in valleys nestled between rugged mountains. The climate of the Cape is unique in Africa, it is a Mediterranean climate - meaning that it has warm dry summers and experiences its rainfall during the mild winter months .Allmost since the first European settlers arrived, the cultivation of grapes and production of wine was attempted. In 1688 French Huguenots fleeing religious persecution in their homeland settled in the cape and brought their expertise in viniculture with them. This boosted the efforts of the Dutch farmers and the region has never looked back.Stop by this Wednesday as we sample some new wines from this ever emerging region of the World.
