Strandveld and Liquid Swords

New in stock: Liquid Sword
The Liquid Sword Mourvedre

The ‘Liquid Sword’ Mourvedre made by Tim Atkin’s “Young Winemaker of the Year” Elizma Visser, of Olifantsberg, is made with fruit from vines planted on the rocky shale soils of the Breede River Valley. Elizma let the whole-bunch grapes go through natural fermentation, followed by 14 months in older barrels. Less meaty and ‘bloody’ than a typical Mourvedre, this is lighter in style, and more fresh-fruit driven. Only 1200 bottles produced.  

Heritage Day | Saturday | Sunday Weekend tasting: 
Strandveld Vineyards is Africa’s southernmost winery and vineyard situated near the southern tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas. Characterised by the constant cooling Atlantic winds and rocky mineral soils, this harsh climate makes these distinctive cool climate wines unique. Come and taste Strandveld this weekend!
Just a reminder that we have an ON/OFF Consumption Liquor License that allows us to be open for tastings over weekends during the newly-imposed Level 3 COVID-19 restrictions.

This means that we are open every day of the week, and will still be able to have our weekend tastings. Please note that you ARE able to purchase for local (Hermanus) delivery which will take place after closing. Any other deliveries (national or international) will be arranged for next week. 

We are open 10am – 6pm Monday to Friday, and 10am – 4pm on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays.

  About Us

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! We visit wine farms and attend tastings to find, taste, and then stock wine from the smaller Estates and independent winemakers who buy grapes and produce outstanding wine under their own labels – much the same as the French negociants have been doing for centuries. Given that these winemakers 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 and MCC’s, we also stock local craft gin and beer, French Champagne, Belgian Ales as well as whisky and other spirits. Wine & Company (established in 1998 by Bartho Eksteen) has a well-earned reputation for stocking hard-to-find small-batch wines and we strive to continue this great tradition. If you purchase a bottle of wine from us and it is faulty we 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 we will do our best to source it for you. We are also able to ship wine locally and to most countries so do ask about international shipping.

  Thank you for your support – stay safe – see you soon!
