Migliarina and the Sondebok…

Merry Christmas to Everyone!
Hermanus is slowly getting busier with tourists and this means it’s the end of another year which seems to have passed very quickly and incredibly slowly at the same time. We thank all our loyal customers for their support during this year, and wish the winemakers and our suppliers all the very best as they take some well-earned time off to spend with friends and family.

We will be open every day during the Festive Season, including Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – and we’re not suggesting you break the law, but….

  In stock: Migliarina

Carsten Migliarina is not a trained winemaker with degrees in Oenology or Viticulture – he was a sommelier, is self-taught and has completed harvests in South-Africa, Germany, Romania and China. Clean wines are the hallmark of the Migliarina brand. All his wines are individually hand crafted from some of the best vineyards in the Cape region with exceptional care being taken in preserving varietal and fruit character. Keeping it simple in the cellar with minimum intervention is the basis for ensuring that the wines are fruit driven and elegant. We love his wine and always have them in stock!

  Mt Abora ‘Sondebok’

Saturday | Sunday Weekend tasting: 
The Mt Abora range has The Abyssinian red blend (Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache) and Koggelbos Chenin Blanc (made in an oxidative and minimal intervention style), and these have now been joined by the Sondebok White and Sondebok Red. Some of us over a certain age might recognise the Springbok ‘Top of the Pops’ in these labels from Pieter de Waal, Johan ‘Stompie’ Meyer and Krige Visser.’

The Sondebok White is ‘mostly’ Chenin Blanc while the Sondebok Red is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Join us this weekend to taste these new releases…..

  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!
