There is a good chance that in these uncertain times, you’ll want to reach for a glass of your favourite wine at the end of the day, to enjoy your very own ‘after work’ drinks, even if it is just you and the dog.
At a time when we’re being told not to leave the house, the boom in online wine shops from local producers is set to become a blessing for the Winelands oenophile. There are few feelings more luxurious than discovering a new bottle (or a dozen) on your doorstep, especially if all you had to do was click a few buttons to make it happen.
With wine flying off supermarket shelves since Monday and with people moving towards ordering everything, including wine, online, we have rounded up three of our favourite local wineries with online shops where you can explore their latest vintages and find everything you need to keep your home bar fully stocked through the days ahead.
This famous estate now brings luxury to you with the launch of their new virtual Wine Lounge and store. Here you can browse the latest vintages as well as other rare finds from the estate’s cellar. They also stock a range of gifts, facial products and their exclusive amenity range, Jardin du Delaire.
