Captain Wings is inspired by my dearest and oldest friend, whose dreams of becoming a pilot and following his dreams have inspired me to this day. His missions take him all over the world, but being part of the French Air force means that often his travels take him all over Africa.
These South African wines represent some of the wonderful varietals that are born in this region that has attracted many French settlers due to its gorgeous terrain and Mediterranean style climate. This climate makes it ideal for growing high-quality grapes. Many of the fields upon which the grapes grow are nestled between mountain ranges and river valleys. The soil there is ideal for growing wine.
Captain Wings delivers wine that is easy-going and easy to drink and an easy choice for customers to try at its value price-point. These wines will satisfy your quotidian wine drinkers.
