Voted one of South Africa’s best wine shops, the Wine Village is a fitting first stop along the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Wine Route. Since opening its doors in 1997 the shop’s fame has skyrocketed, with the passionate and enthusiastic owners, Paul and Cathy du Toit, lovingly selecting more and more wines every year to offer to wine lovers from all over.
Exceptional care and enthusiastic passion have created a wine emporium with the largest selection of South African wine & spirits available to local and international clients alike. Tempting discerning buyers with the best wine to offer from the Adi Badenhorst to Zorgvliet and tempting them with the cultivar specific displays. An exploration through the Wine Village caters for every pocket and palate. The personal touch of the Wine Village team draws clients from across South Africa and the globe returning time and again. Wines are shipped door to door to 23 countries around the world.
Alongside the almost limitless wine selection on display there are also plenty of olive oils, ales, ciders, brandies, whiskies and other gift and treat options to take home. There are also daily wine tastings that give interested parties the chance to taste around 6 of the wines in the shop – a great way to get a better idea of South Africa’s wines and styles.
Every year the Wine Village hosts several well-known events, namely the Hermanus Wine & Food Festival in August and their Wine Village Wine Celebration from December until January. These events not only help to boost “wine awareness” of South African wines but are also a fun and great way to meet new people, brush up on your wine trivia and enjoy the fruits of the vine.
