Get Help Choosing the Perfect Bottle at Wine & Company

Words: Crush

Have you ever heard about a great wine but could never find a bottle for yourself (to share with friends, of course)? Well, the team at Wine & Company do all the hard work for you! They find, taste, and stock wine from the smaller Estates and independent winemakers who buy grapes and make outstanding wine under their own label – much the same as the French negociants have been doing for centuries. Given that they make wine in such small quantities, sometimes just a single barrel, their wine will never be found on the shelves of the major retailers, but only in specialist shops like Wine & Company on High Street, Hermanus.

In addition to the great selection of well-known wines, they stock craft gin and beer as well as whisky and other spirits. The new owners are making exciting changes to the shop (which was established in 1998 by Bartho Eksteen) and include plans for a Wine Bar too!

Wine & Company has a well-earned reputation for stocking hard-to-find small-batch wines and they strive to continue this great tradition. If you purchase a bottle of wine from them and it is faulty or you are not satisfied with the quality, they will gladly replace the bottle and return the faulty wine to the winemaker.

Feel free to contact Wine & Company if you need a particular wine and they will do their best to source it for you. They are also able to ship wine locally and to most countries so do ask about international shipping.
