South African Wines Timeline :1859
A timeline describing the 5 main events that shaped winemaking in South Africa.
1859 : In the late 1700's wines from Constantia earned a great reputation across Europe. The area soon fell under British rule and large quantities of wine were exported to Britain. This was great for the industry, but in 1860 a free trade agreement was signed between France and Britain that lead to an increase in exports from France and limited exports from South Africa.
The project is used as part of the Wine literature for the Athens based African-inspired restaurant Kozi's.
