To backpackers, jet-setters, shoppers, mountain climbers and beach lovers, Indonesia is a tropical haven worthy of a thousand visits.  Home to over 17,000 picturesque islands, there’s always something new to explore in this culturally-rich Southeast Asian country. 

One of the biggest unexplored aspects of Indonesia is its small but promising wine production. As the biggest Muslim country in the world, wine production in the region is highly limited due to alcohol prohibition. The Indonesian government only allows wine consumption in selected hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs.

Thus, for many Indonesians, locally-made wine is out of question. 

Well, not really. 

Guess what, quality wines often get touch of processing in Indonesia's paradise island of Bali. Who would guess that Cape Discovery, an award-winning wine brand, has and office and processing facility in Singaraja, northern Bali? 

Cape Discovery combs the globe to find some of best grape harvests available, and transport  grapes using natural preservation technique to their winery site in Singaraja. Here, it undergoes a traditional wine-making techniques to produce high quality wines at its winery facility. The varieties include : Chardonnay, Rose, Sparkling Chardonnay, and the most popular, Sauvignon Blanc.  This way, Cape Discovery keeps making  both appealing and affordable wines.
