South Africa has some of the best wine in the world. To go along with that wine, the wine growing regions in South Africa are simply amazing in terms of their beauty. The winelands offer a good escape from the bustle of Cape Town and it seems like there is a wine festival of some sort every weekend. A trip to South Africa and the Western Cape is not complete without a trip to towns like Stellenbosch or Franschhoek to enjoy learning about the winemaking culture and heritage of South Africa and to try some great vintages at the countless wine farms. There are plenty of tours to shuttle you around so you can take part in some of the tastings, which by the way, are a lot “healthier” than in the wine regions of the US and Australia.
