The Platter 5* Selection  

Every year we wait in anticipation to see who rates Five Stars in the Platter Guide – and this year seems to have been a very, very long year indeed! The results have at last been released, and the new guide should be available soon too.

  These are the wines, winemakers and Estates that we love and are proud to represent and sell to our customers, and we are lucky enough to still have some of the coveted wines on our shelves because many have been sold out for months already.

We not only actively seek out the best, but also the smaller producers and our customers are always blown away by the range of labels on our shelves and this is exactly what makes us different and why they make a point of stopping in when they are in town.

if you would like to add any of these wines (or others) to your cellar please drop by or call/send us via email.

Southern Right Pinotage

Saturday | Sunday Weekend tasting: 
With fruit coming from the Overberg and Swartland, (Hemel-en-Aarde Valley 20%, Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley 44%, Walker Bay 2%, Swartland 34%), Southern Right is re-defining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle wood spice. Full ripeness and the longer hang-time afforded by cooler sites, combined with the complex, more classic fruit aromas and structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa’s unique grape variety. Join us this weekend to taste the latest vintage!

  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!
