A library of rare, vintage icons and younger gems from South Africa and the world’s finest wine regions.


Over time Wine Cellar has built an impressive library of vintage South African and international wines in fine condition. Bottles in top condition and parcels, especially pre-2000, are becoming increasingly rare due to the lack of temperature-controlled cellars in our sunny climate.


By combining our vintage and brokerage lists, we are able to offer a snapshot into the past with some of South Africa’s rarest icon wines as well as younger gems. All brokerage and vintage wines are stored in our temperature-controlled, specialised cellars in Observatory, Cape Town.


We have taken every care in only offering wines of known good provenance, having tasted through many bottles for quality assurance.
