A timeline describing the 5 main events that shaped winemaking in South Africa.
1652 : In the 1600’s the spice trade flourished and Europeans sailed across Africa to the East to find the most exotic of spices. The journey was long and hard so the Dutch decided to create something like a halfway stop that would allow sailors to stock up on food and wine. Today this stop is known as Cape Town.
