I'm not sure exactly when this change happened (attached document dated November 10) but there is a new region in South Africa, Cape South Coast Region and it contains the following districts:
Also, this means that Swellendam is no longer part of the Breede River Valley.
Franschhoek Valley is now its own district and therefore the production of Boberg also includes Franschhoek.
Not my area of expertise so if anybody has any updated information please let us know. We are in the process of adding these to the Wine Regions wikis. I have attached the original document.
There are also two unaffiliated wards in this new region: Herbertsdale and Stilbaai East.
Do you know if Boekenhoutskloof falls in the Franschhoek Valley district? I am trying to find out online.
Boekenhoutskloof wionery falls in the Franschhoek Valley District, however please note they outsourced a lot of their grape such as the Syrah (Hence Coastal Region Blend Origin) only the Noble Late, Cabernet Sauvignon and Semillon are 100% Wine of Origin Franschhoek.
The whole range of Porcupine Ridge, The Chocolate Block and The Wolftrap are made from outsourced grape and hence not WO Franschhoek
I am awaiting final details from SAWIS and will let keep everyone updated, they basically looking at dividing the winelands in 3 main Regions, and Cape South Coast is kind of the first step, following the application and approval of the new demarcation of Herbertsdale and Stillbaai East.
The gazetted application will read something like West Coast, Southern Cape and Greater Cape, shall keep everyone posted.
Thanks for the added information.
SAWIS has confirmed the Cape South Coast and other changes via email.
As I put together the wikis on South Africa, the input of anyone with extensive knowledge of the country's producers and styles is greatly appreciated. I don't drink or work with a lot of South African wine!
Don't let him fool you. His middlename is Pinotage.
SAWIS has updated the regional map on its site
They also have the production areas doc that you posted.
WOSA has not caught up with this yet.
