Wine Enthusiast says of South African Wines: "South African wines offer impressively good value, and feature styles and tastes that are food friendly, blending elegance and power. South Africa has been producing wine since the first vines were planted in the 17th century, brought by the Dutch governors of Cape Colony."
But South African wines have been discovered! The high quality to value ratio has put these wines on radar everywhere. Add to this the supply chain problems around the world and the demand increases. There is concern in the wine world that with consumer interest in South African Wines that prices may increase.
"We are on a constant search for South African Wines that continue to present high quality for an affordable price," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines.
MetroWines has invited Ocean South Imports to present selections from their impressive collection of South African Wines. Ocean South Imports is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina focusing on bringing minimalist, terroir-driver, food-friendly wines from all over the world to independent wine shops, restaurants, and bars.
