A visit to Cape Town is often synonymous with wine tasting at Stellenbosch and the Franschhoek Valley. And by the end of this year you can add Cape Town International Airport to your list of wine routes in the Western Cape.


The airport will soon be able to produce some 700 bottles of Merlot every two years, South Africa’s Business Day reported.


A small cellar in the international arrivals hall will allow passengers to watch as the airport ferments and produces its own wine.


The winery is part of a programme developed by the Airports Company SA (Acsa) to enhance the travelling experience.


Cape Town airport was named the best in Africa by Airports Council International for service quality earlier this year.
