Wine Cellar started trading in December 2000 as an importer of fine wine, based in Observatory Cape Town. Bordeaux is our specialty although we focus on fine wines from Burgundy, the Rhône & elsewhere in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal & Germany. We offer fine local wines that push the boundaries and are able to source any local wine at competitive prices.  

Other services we offer: Cellaring, a brokerage service, fine wine tastings and a shipping service from London City Bond to Cape Town in refrigerated containers. 


We offer tastings in Johannesburg and Cape Town; from comparative tastings for private and corporate groups to tastings of our latest imports for the public. We also offer luxury dinners paired with rare wines.
