On request products

Wines that are listed as available ‘on request’ are not physically in stock and need to be ordered in from our suppliers. As such, a minimum order of 6 bottles applies. Please note that ‘on request’ products may take up to 10 days to be delivered.

SQ: Not available online

Although the vast majority of our wines can be ordered online, a small number of limited products must be ordered by phone or email. To order wines that are in stock, but not for sale on our website, email or call us on 021 448 4105.
