About the book:
Tasting the Cape is a guide to the world-renowned Cape winelands, a travelling companion and more. Filled with insights from one of South Africa's most influential food and wine critics, the book offers the wine lover a new and accessible approach to South African wines by grouping the featured estates by character - the formal types, the wacky ones and the quiet achievers. Tasting the Cape will not only introduce you to the legends of the Cape winelands and the history of the estates they call home, but will also show you how to navigate your way through the region depending on your interests and the type of wine you are interested in tasting - suggesting routes that combine wine with scenic drives and history. This completely new way of experiencing the Cape winelands combines useful knowledge about wine with a flavour of the places and people that make this one of the world's most fascinating and dynamic wine-producing areas.
