Stellenbosch, South Africa
Situated to the east of Cape Town, the Stellenbosch district lies just inland from the coast surrounding the town of Stellenbosch itself. With an ideal climate giving sufficient rainfall, cool winds, mountain coverage, and a variety of altitudes and soils, Stellenbosch has built a reputation for growing top class red wines. In particular, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Red Blends. In the cooler sites, excellent Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are also grown.
