May 2022

May has arrived and along with it the gradual start of winter, and of course the ever welcome winter rains that go with it for us in the Cape!….but that means lovely wholesome stews and great reds to enjoy and savour around a warm fire.

And of course we have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with our daily tastings from well-known and newer estates. Please visit our website for details on our tastings at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.
