Did you know? The first recorded grape pressing in South Africa dates back to the early 1650’s. Soon after Jan van Riebeeck set foot ashore in 1652, the first grape vines were planted in the Company’s Garden. On 2 February 1659, Jan van Riebeeck produced the first wine from Cape grapes. Assisted by enthusiasm from other Dutch Governors, viticulture was soon established in various regions. As time went by, the beautiful wine regions of the Western Cape started unfolding in what is today one of the best wine-producing regions in the world.
