Wine is sensitive to temperature change (as well as light, heat and humidity) and therefore correct storage is crucial for perfect wine maturation. Our refrigerated, secure, specialised cellars in Observatory provide ideal conditions for long or short-term wine storage. Customers are able to view their cellar online and withdraw wine during office hours.

Cellar conditions

  • Wines are stored in a clean, dark, vibration-free underground cellar. The temperature is controlled at 14 degrees Centigrade (57 Fahrenheit) at a humidity of 70%.
  • Daily temperatures are monitored and recorded. All cellar floors are clean and dry.
  • The cellars are locked and protected with high-security alarms and closed-circuit television. Access is only permitted with a member of Wine Cellar.
  • Wine Cellar has gone green. Our specialised underground cellars are now powered by solar panels, which reduces our energy consumption and overall impact on the environment. Find out more.

Location

  • We are located off the N1, N2 and M4 in Observatory, Cape Town. We are open Monday to Friday, from 08h00 - 17h00. Special arrangement can be made to accommodate clients' access to their wine at other times.
