South Africa has a winemaking history that spans over 350 years. The French Huguenots and Dutch settlers brought vines from their homelands and established vineyards to provide wine to the Dutch East India Company merchant ships. 1659 marked the Cape’s first recorded vintage.
Spirit of Pawling
The Spirits of Pawling tell the story of South African wine. Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc are all produced in South Africa. Abraham Perold, the first viticulture professor at Stellenbosch, created the one-of-a-kind Pinotage variety in the Cape in 1925. It is a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault. The only grape with significant old vine plantings in South Africa is Chenin Blanc, which is the most widely planted variety. The most widely planted red variety is Cabernet Sauvignon, but the gap is closing as Syrah plantings continue to rise.
