Wine & Company - The Gold Member
The new vintage releases should be appearing over the next few weeks and months, so keep an eye out for our Newsletters and let us know if there are any particular favourites that you need to add to your cellar. We already have the "Scions of Sinai", "Craven" and "Thorne and Daughters" ranges, but don't forget that we can order almost any wine for you!
Maanschijn Gold Member
This week we are supporting our talented local young winemakers Doug and Paul of Maanschijn with their new Chenin Blanc. Two components make up this varietal wine: 70% of the fruit was crushed, macerated overnight and pressed directly to aged barrels; 30% of the fruit was fermented in whole bunches for two weeks. The portions were blended once dry, and matured in old French oak for six months. The wine was neither fined nor filtered and was bottled by hand without any addition of sulphur. Price: R253.00
As per the current COVID-19 Level 3 regulations, our opening hours are:
- Monday to Thursday: 9am - 5pm.
- Closed: Friday to Sunday and Public Holidays.

Thank you for your support - stay safe - see you soon!
Have you ever heard about a great wine but could never find a bottle for yourself (to share with friends, of course)? Well, the team at Wine & Company do all the hard work for you! We visit wine farms and attend tastings to find, taste, and then stock wine from the smaller Estates and independent winemakers who buy grapes and produce outstanding wine under their own labels – much the same as the French negociants have been doing for centuries. Given that these winemakers make wine in such small quantities, sometimes just a single barrel, their wine will never be found on the shelves of the major retailers, but only in specialist shops like Wine & Company on High Street, Hermanus.
In addition to the great selection of well-known wines and MCC's, we also stock local craft gin and beer, French Champagne, La Trappe Trappist Ales as well as whisky and other spirits. Wine & Company (established in 1998 by Bartho Eksteen) has a well-earned reputation for stocking hard-to-find small-batch wines and we strive to continue this great tradition. If you purchase a bottle of wine from us and it is faulty or you are not satisfied with the quality, we will gladly replace the bottle and return the faulty wine to the winemaker.
Feel free to contact Wine & Company if you need a particular wine and we will do our best to source it for you. We are also able to ship wine locally and to most countries so do ask about international shipping.
