I am going to Johannesburg in Nov. and am interested in possibly doing a tour of a vineyard/winery in that region. Any suggestions as to where to begin researching to see what is available?

Take the next flight to Cape Town and purchase John Platter’s (I think that is the author’s name, at any rate, it is a small black book known to all wine enthusiast in SA) book on South African wines, widely available in the area.

p.s. check out Thelema and Kanonkop among many others.

Would not stay too long in JBurg unless you have to; but it is the best place for jumping off to safaris. Stellenbosch is like the Napa Valley but Franschhoek and Paarl are also great.Try http://www.wine.co.za for info
