South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent, and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils perfectly suited to quality grape production.

Vintage conditions
The 2010 harvest will be remembered for its erratic weather changes, which posed a challenge for winemakers and viticulturist alike. A cold but late winter preceded the growing season, providing much needed rest to the vineyards. Budding was earlier than expected, which introduced an early start for the 2010 harvest. The season was characterised by mild weather until the end of February, which was favourable for slow ripening and the development of berry flavours. Above average rainfall was recorded during the growing season, resulting in increased disease pressure and lower vineyard yields. Quality in general was very good, promising a range of excellent wines.
