You can travel in South Africa for months’ on end and still not see all the magnificent and amazing corners of the country. The South African wine region is one of the very popular tourist destinations because it is simply breathtakingly beautiful. ( and hey…it certainly isn’t hard to handle on the palette either!)
Several of the major wine routes, including Constantia, Durbanville, Darling, Stellenbosch, Helderberg, Paarl, Franschhoek, Wellington and Walker Bay, are within an 60 minutes or less driving distance from dazzling Cape Town. Some others, like Breedekloof, Worcester, Robertson, the Little Karoo, Tulbagh, the Swartland, Olifants River and the Northern Cape will take you on a slightly longer journey through constantly changing and splendorous landscapes.
If you have had a chance to go to an LCBO this month (sorry thats our Ontario liquor stores. Canada Residents only) you might have strolled past the section for South Africa. If you did, I trust that you picked up a bottle of vino marked with a promotional tag to “Win a Magical Trip for 2 to South Africa” with Goway.com and South African Airways! You don’t have to make a purchase but the wine makers of South Africa would really appreciate you sampling something new or going with an old favourite!
“Did you know…

It is also independent of any government department, although it is recognised by government as an Export Council.
