August 2023

This month 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.

Arriving on our shelves are some of the new vintage releases from several of the smaller producers such as Alheit, Hogan and Rall amongst others and we suggest you don’t leave it too late before these superb wines disappear!

Eskom – Load Shedding
Please note that both our stores are fully operational during any outages that occur throughout our operating hours.

Looking for an older or sold out wine?
We opened our two stores over two decades ago and as a result have developed close relationships with many wineries and producers. We mention this in case you are perhaps looking for a wine that may no longer be available as we may be able to secure that special bottle for you.

V’know Wine Appreciation Pack – July/August 2023
The fourteenth edition of our successful V’know Wine Appreciation Pack is available! An exciting selection of six delicious wines with the detailed description of each of the wines included in the pack plus a glossary of wine terms referred to.

Our V’know packs are available in both our stores or order online by clicking the banner on the right of our newsletter. Enjoy!

Wine Gems – our fortnightly e-mailer
Our fortnightly wine mailer called Wine Gems invites you every fortnight to discover a selection of wines from 2 estates available from our online store.

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.

For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Baked Dalewood Fromage Feta with Honey spiced Blueberries.

Once again we thank you all so much for your wonderful continued and loyal support.

Quality Quaffers by Wine Concepts

Wine Concepts has always taken pride in our mission to bring you exceptional, perhaps lesser-known, premium wines that offer both quality and value.

Following on this we are delighted to unveil our latest addition, “Quality Quaffers” – where we will highlight a selection of outstanding wines priced under R150 per bottle. These quaffers are carefully curated by our team to provide you with delightful experiences without breaking the bank. You can easily spot them in our stores by looking for the distinctive “Quality Quaffer” sticker on the bottle.
