We’ve all been sitting high and dry for about a month now after President Cyril Ramaphosa placed a ban on the sale of alcohol to reduce pressure on medical facilities.

That doesn’t mean the Western Cape’s world-renowned wineries have been idle, though. And, as they say, wine only gets better with age. A host of producers are offering incredible discounts and special offers for orders placed before the alcohol ban is lifted. This is also one way to support winemakers during an extremely difficult time.

So, get your hands on these eclectic drinks to celebrate when we’re allowed our much-loved vino again.

Please note: All alcoholic orders will only be delivered once the ban has been lifted and you have to be over the age of 18 to place an order.
