South Africa

This New World wine producer actually has some pretty vintage roots. The first grapes were pressed for wine at the Cape in 1659 under the command of Jan van Riebeeck (aka Dawson Leary). While laws and languages in the region changed, the vineyards stayed planted but weren't productive until a generation later. A "Wine of Origin" system was implemented in 1973 with designated production regions, districts and wards. There are now nearly 60 officially declared appellations. Concentrated around Cape Town, wine production gets good press with major vineyard and production centers in Paarl, Stellenbosch and Worcester.
