South Africa is home to some of the world's most prominent and tastiest wines, where the Coastal Region is considered the best.

Stellenbosch is one of the most famous districts in the Coastal Region, producing exclusive wines that are then exported to the different corners of the world, where we as consumers can enjoy these fantastic productions. For example, go to wine tasting in the Coastal Region.

The region is filled with attractive activities, attractions and entertainment that you can enjoy. Visit the incredibly popular Middelberg Waterfall waterfall, or take a day trip to the Devils Peak mountain top. Also take the opportunity to try out domestic dishes such as Pampouenkoekies or Sosatie.

The different types of wines you will find within the Coastal Region
Coastal Region offers many different wines and grapes. Here you will find white, red and rosé wines, where Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are the most common red grapes, while Chenin Blanc, Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc are the white grapes that are in focus.

Their red wines have a distinct taste that contains traces of cocoa and dried plums. The wines are produced with an unusually high concentration, which sets a mark in the taste.

The white wines instead have flavors reminiscent of fresh fruit. Aromas and flavours reminiscent of citrus fruits and other tropical fruits give the wines a very fresh and fruity taste.
