South Africa´s winemaking history starts more than 350 years ago. Motivated by the fovourable soil and the mild climate, Jan van Riebeeck planted a small vineyard in 1655. Four years later the first 15 litres of wine was successfully pressed, and soon farmers across the Cape started growing grapes. Quality improved constantly, especially with the arrival of French settlers towards the end of the 17th century. European winemaking philosophy has ever since been an integral part of the South African wine industry. Wild South demonstrates how we combine the best of French winemaking traditions and our unique vineyards and climate. Wild, yet civilized.
