The Cape Town district was formerly established as a wine growing area in 2017. It replaced the label Cape Peninsula in an effort to make a greater connection between the city and its surrounding vineyards. It features four wards, of which Constantia and Durbanville hold the largest reputations.
The hilly district of Darling find itself to the north of Cape Town and is characterised by its proximity to South Africa’s west coast. As such its relatively cooler climate can be detected in the wines, particularly with Sauvignon Blanc but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. There are some fascinating wines to be found in the Groenekloof ward.
Stellenbosch is home to some of South Africa’s best Cabernet Sauvignon. There are a number of mono-varietal wines made here as well as Bordeaux blend wines.
