South African culture is deeply rooted in tradition and is powerfully bonded to the land. With sweeping landscapes, magnificent wildlife, and bustling cities, today South Africa is a crossroads where unique indigenous cultures and modern lifestyles meet. Sebeka® wines are a prime example of how “Old World” traditions blend with “New World” styles to create a distinct taste experience for the adventurous wine aficionado. With a 350-year winemaking history, South Africa is quickly emerging as one of the premier winegrowing regions worldwide. We invite you to pursue the real story, exploring the preconceptions and misconceptions that often swirl around a glass of South African wine. We invite you to experience South Africa, and its vibrant and turbulent viticultural history. “Since 1652…” The wine industry in South Africa, like its citizenry, has suffered economic, political, and developmental turmoil over the past 100 years. These political forces have been extremely influential in the development of vineyards as well as in the creation and exportation of wine. In 1652, Jan van Riebeeck, commissioned by the Dutch East India Company, established a food supply station for their fleet of merchant ships at the Cape of Good Hope in Africa. This powerful trade company was aware that 40% of a ship’s crew could possibly suffer from scurvy during an extended ocean voyage; therefore, they mandated a daily supply of wine for its sailors to prevent this incapacitating disease. Wine in South Africa flourished around the time of the European settlement; the first European vine went into the ground in 1655 at the southern tip of Africa, which led to the production of the first wine in 1659.

A highly capable table wine sold at a proper price for a table wine. This will wash down most any food you could come across. There's no sacrifices here. It's fruity and tasty, but a hint of unmitigated pinotage boldness comes through, that complex mix of petroleum, roasted corn, goat cheese, and gaminess. So many other wines in the same price range are drinkable but generic. This isn't one of those. It's both versatile and memorable.
