About Stellenbosch and Paarl
It is in Stellenbosch that you traditionally find the country's best red wines. They are in most cases made from Cabernet, Syrah (Shiraz) and Merlot.
The climate is balanced. The almost ideal pluviometry is advantageous making quality wines. Notably in the renowned zones of Simonsberg, Papegaaiberg and Jonkershoek valley.
More in the north, the vineyard of Paarl has made a nice reputation these last years with its white wines made from the international grape varieties.
