Wine and Co - Tiger Style and #DrinkChenin Day on 18 June 2021...
THE TIGER STYLE SYRAH...
Now in stock: The Caravel Wine Co has done it again with their quirky labels! This year, their small-batch is a lovely Syrah from the 'Golden Triangle' of Stellenbosch. Typically limited quantities, this one will not be on the shelf for long!
WELGEGUND THIS WEEK...
Saturday/Sunday Weekend tasting: Over the weekend we will be tasting the Chenin Blanc and Grenache from Welgegund in Wellington. It happens to be a very good choice due to 18 June being International #DrinkChenin Day...
This Friday 18 June is International #DrinkCheninDay so be sure to enjoy one of South Africa's best exports!
COVID-19 Rules: We are lucky to have an ON/OFF Consumption Liquor License that allows us to be open for tastings during the newly-imposed Level 3 COVID-19 restrictions. This means that we are open every day of the week, and will still be able to have our weekend tastings so please join us this weekend to taste the Welgegund Chenin Blanc and Grenache. Please note that you ARE able to purchase for local (Hermanus) delivery which will take place after closing. Any National deliveries will be arranged for next week.
Loadshedding: We have a UPS that allows us to run our computer during Eskom's power failures so even though we may be in darkness, we are lucky enough to be able to have our doors open to serve our customers.

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, Belgian 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 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.
