Buy high quality wine at half price? ! Cape Town's winery trip!

When it comes to wine, you may think of Europe and the United States, because South Africa, Africa should also have a name on the map of the world of wine! Speaking of the history of South African wines, we must thank the French, flowers and flowers today to trace the source, to see the monument marking the beginning of the South African wine industry.

It is said that in the 17th century, South Africa was under the rule of the Dutch colonists. In the far-flung European continent of France, the Catholic world, the Protestant Calvinist sect in France, the Huguenots, was subjected to Catholic religious oppression. (Catholic vs. Protestant wars, there are too many stories to be told in Europe.) So some of Huguenots followers fled to South Africa to negotiate with Dutch colonists to introduce French winemaking techniques to gain the opportunity to stay in South Africa. This is the birthplace of South African wine history. To this day, there is the Huguenot Monument and Huguenot Avenue in South Africa to commemorate this happening.

Therefore, visiting a winery in South Africa is a must! In the Stellenbosch production area we went to this time, there are stretches of vineyards. The winery chosen by Fire Rabbit is called Lanzerac, which was bought by the Dutch in 1194 with 18,000 pounds. Today, Production of the second best Pino Taji in South Africa. Which winery can produce the best Pino Taji? This question is like a flower, and naturally it is asked to export. The staff of the winery laughs and does not answer. It is only said that it is less than 5 kilometers here. It can be seen that this piece is really a famous generation!

Speaking of Pino Taji, it is a grape variety that everyone must not miss in South Africa, just like coming to Germany, everyone is eager to drink Riesling, go to Chile, and fight for Jiamei Na. Come to South Africa and drink Pino Taji! Pinotage was born in 1925 and was developed by Abraham Izak Perold, the first viticulture professor at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. Professor Behold developed a hybrid grape variety in his own garden using Pinot Noir and Cinsault.

Here, you can enter the wine cellar with the staff and listen to how a bottle of Pinottaji is produced. Pino Taji, South Africa, was hand-picked, because it loved the dry taste, and began to pick in the third week of January. It was an early harvest, and 300 people were busy from the early morning to the sundial.

The vine grows for 25 years before it can produce the best quality Pino Taji, but the grapes that are not high-yield are less, so the new vines will be replanted after 30 years. The days of producing pioneer grapes are only five years. In addition, the oak barrels are extremely expensive. For a more sultry taste, the winery insists on the use of French oak barrels, each priced at 15,000 rand, which is a big expense!

It is recommended that the pollen buy wine at the winery. The diligent and family-oriented flowers are specially designed for everyone to compare the price. It is probably half of a treasure. Just need to start, but please pay attention to the duty-free drinks when entering the country. There are two bottles of shares, and the requirements are below 1.5 liters. If you want to drink Pino Taji, you can often come and see, really good and cheap!
