Cape Town has been called one of the most beautiful wine cities in the world. The heart of the fine wine region is around
Stellenbosch and Paarl.
White wine is dominated by Steen, the local name for the chenin blanc although there is a lot of semillon and riesling produced. For red wines, the cinsaut
has been crossed with the pinot noir to make the pinotage grape, unique to South Africa.
