Wines from the Cape in South Africa

Wines from the Cape in South Africa

Friday, 17 February 2017

Our presentation in February will consist of a selection of wines from the
Cape in South Africa by Terry and Cheryl at The Settlement on Friday 17 February.


Apparently, the roots of the South African wine industry can be traced back to the explorations of the Dutch East India Company, which established a supply station in what is now Cape Town. A Dutch surgeon was assigned the task of managing the station and planting vineyards to produce wines and grapes. The first harvest and crushing took place in 1659, seven years after landing in 1652 and was intended to ward off scurvy among sailors during their voyages along the spice route. 


If anyone is interesting in trying out our lively group, do get in touch and come along. You will be warmly welcomed.
