South Africa’s winning cups

South Africa’s wines didn't find a global market until the late 1990s, though its winemaking goes as far back as 350 years.

“Winemaking in South Africa dates back 350 years,” said Bill Daley in the Chicago Tribune. But the country’s wines didn’t find a global market until the late 1990s. Considering the wide variety of grapes and low production costs, experts believe the “future holds much opportunity for South African winemakers.” In honor of the country hosting this year’s World Cup, celebrate with these two.

2009 Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc ($15)A contender for “sipping wine of the summer,” this “bright, fresh, fruity” bottle from the Western Cape region “epitomizes the charm of Chenin Blanc.”

2004 Fleur du Cap Pinotage ($16)Made from native South African Pinotage grapes, this earthy wine features hints of “mushroom, eucalyptus, and herbs on the tongue.”
