Viva South Africa: Wines & Tastes of South Africa

With the first grape harvest outside Cape Town in 1659, South Africa became the first "New World" producer of wine.  From that time, South African wine had more than its share of challenges, positioning it as a second-rate producer, and really more famous for brandy production than fine wine.  However, once Apartheid ended in the mid-90's, everything changed, and for almost 20 years, South Africa has become the world-class producer it was destined to be.

Wine & Cheese Pairings

You might be surprised to know that cheese was historically used to "improve" a bad wine. And as the quality of wine made centuries ago would be unrecognizable today, cheese was helpful by smoothing out the coarseness one would expect. As time marched on, and local cuisines were consumed with local wines, certain wine and cheese "classic pairings" evolved.
