About Wine Cellar

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. 

Wine Cellar offers the greatest wine region in the world en-primeur (as futures). 2017 will be our 17th Bordeaux campaign and will be offered from April 2018 onwards for delivery in 2020.
We update our blog daily with the latest news, videos, tasting reports, recipes and more. It's also a great place to learn about fine wine.
Wine Cellar imports fine wine from Europe, offers antipodean wines, fine local wines as well as brokers your fine wine. We also focus on selling wines en-primeur (as futures) from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône.
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.
Professional cellaring of single bottles for private clients through to pallet loads for trade clients. Wines are stored at 14 degrees in our secure underground cellars in Observatory, Cape Town.
