2. B3. “RECENT COLONIAL” VITICULTURE

2.1 South Africa viticulture vine varieties – “Recent Colonial” viticulture

South Africa (Table 2.18.a South Africa wine grape varieties) is the oldest of the “recent colonial" viticulture, dating back to 1655 when it was introduced by the Huguenots and the Dutch, who made Stellenbosch a vine-growing and wine-producing center of world importance.

The Huguenots, of French origin, adopted the Gallic’s varietal vine heritage. 

Significant research of Peroldt (1922) on genetic improvement has led to the creation of an appealing cross: Pinotage (Pinot noir x Cinsault).
