Grapemaps Introduction

Whether on paper or on a computer screen, a map is the best tool available to catalog and view the arrangement of things on the Earth's surface.


Mapping the wine regions of South Africa using a relief map, the reader is given a natural sense of the lay of the land. An important consideration, as it relates to viticulture. Slope, aspect and altitude all influence the winemakerís choice of vine.


Wine lovers, producers, hikers, explorers, writers, buyers, educators, collectors, agents, distributors, travel agents, tour guides, land developers, GPS treasure-hunters, civil engineers and tourists, we hope that our map will add some magic to your Cape of Good Wine Experience!
