Wine and Co - Pesky Hobbit Gin...
OPEN, SORT OF...
Here's some good news - we will be open for tastings over weekends! Stop in to taste and we can deliver any purchases after we close.
It seems that with our On/Off License we are able to open for tastings and sales - with deliveries only after we close the shop. This means that if you come in over the weekend you can buy wine, but cannot immediately take it home with you - we will deliver to you in Hermanus (free local delivery, obviously). If you live elsewhere, we can arrange to courier the wine to you the following week.
We will be tasting the Marie White (made by winemaker Reino Thiart) this weekend so please pop in!
Opening hours this weekend:
• Friday 19 February: CLOSED.
• Saturday 20 February: 10am to 4pm.
• Sunday 21 February: 10am to 4pm.
A NEW GIN
Brand new in our Gin Collection is the "Pesky Hobbit Craft Gin, Not Another London Dry"! This small but ambitious brand from Cape Town celebrates 15 different botanicals each contributing to an unrivaled and memorable taste. A winner of a gold medal at the 2020 SA Craft Gin awards just 3 months into their journey says it all. Oh and we love the name! Make sure to pick the Hobbit out during your next visit to Wine and Company!
Thanks again to everyone who purchased our vouchers! We will continue to donate 5% of the voucher value to the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pre-school, in addition to offering a 5% discount of the voucher value to in-store purchases.

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.
