Where it all began
Wine Cellar was founded more than 15 years ago by Richard Burnett and David Brice. After transforming the ‘Wine Cellar Club’ into a business in December 2000, Richard and David began importing European wines into Cape Town, whilst also offering specialised wine storage at their cellars in Observatory. In 2005, the co-founders employed Roland Peens to manage the business and the rest, as they say, is history.
