Americans drink more and more South African wine and they drink higher quality South African wines. Sales of South African wines in the United States increased by 14% in the past 12 months and the value increased by 25%.

There is an increasing interest in the US at the moment for small South African quality producers who produce exciting and interesting wines. Not least we are happy to see that Chenin Blanc is becoming popular, partly thanks to the grape’s incredible versatility. The light and fresh style of Chenin will attract consumers who usually drink Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. And the rich, fat and complex style of Chenin attracts more connoisseur consumers. Methode Cap Classique (MCC), the often excellent South African sparkling wines, have also seen a huge increase in the United States. It is time this South Africa quality trend reaches other countries too! Read more on the US interest in South African wines: prweb.com.

It is a well earned growth. Join us on the wine tour to South Africa in March and you will meet some of the best winemakers in the country.
