I should add that my wife and I are confessed wine junkies. We have toured wine country in Italy, Argentina, California and South Africa. South Africa is our favorite. They have some unbelievable wines that never find their way to North America. The country around Stellenbosch is stunning. If you like fine wines, great food and amazing accomodations it should be on your bucket list. I believe that you could fly to RSA and spend a week in wine country cheaper than you could fly to California to do the same thing.
You’re spot on, WAB. An for any Americans that like Reds but have digestive issues due to sulfides, the domestic SA reds don’t have the same crap in them that US imports require. The $3 table wine there is as good as any of the $18-$25 stuff we buy in the states.
