About the Store
This store has been in the Cape Town CBD since 1997, and is run by owner Caroline Rillema with Lyzette Tanski and Simone Norval. This is the engine-room of the business, where all stock is held in bulk, and a huge range of South African wines are kept. We have allocations of all the top small-vineyard wines, made by our most iconic winemakers.
We hold the largest range of European wines in any retail store in South Africa. From France we have Champagnes, top Bordeaux , over 30 Burgundies and 15 from Chablis and the Loire. From the Rhone we have Cotes-du-Rhone, Chateauneufs, Crozes-Hermitage, Cote-Rotie, Hermitage and many more. That is not to mention Germany and Alsace!
Our forte is Italy and our selection is superb and vas - most of it imported directly, so there is no middleman: we have twelve different single-vineyard Barolos, Brunellos from Montalcino, Chianti Classicos, Gavi and Super-Tuscans such as Tignanello and Ornellaia... from Spain we have Sierra Cantabria and Vina Tondonia, Muga , Marques de Riscal, to mention just a few.
We can pack wines for you to travel with, in special boxes with polystyrene inners. They come in 2's, 3's and 6's.
We deliver all over South Africa as well as the world. All you have to do is choose your wine, and we will do the rest to make sure that your wine arrives safely and in perfect condition at its destination.
Our message is simple: Great variety, great product knowledge by staff, and most importantly: if we don't have what you are looking for, we will try our best to acquire it for you!
