Caroline's Fine Wine Cellar is a specialist wine retailer situated in central Cape Town. The company's two stores are owned and managed by Caroline Rillema, who has 30 years of experience in the wine industry. Her passion has taken her to all the major wine regions of the world, and she applies her knowledge in selecting the finest imported and South African wines she can find for her customers. You will find a vast selection of Bordeaux, Burgundian, Loire, Champagne, Italian and Spanish wines, as well as some exciting names from the New World. We currently also offer a daily winetasting with local winemaker, Lieze Norval. The tasting offers an overview of the Cape Winelands and is designed for those travels who do not have enough time to go out to wine farms. Booking is essential.

We went in looking for specific wines and we were pointed to them straight away. There is a huge amount of choice and we would have loved to carry more back home with us. Will be back on our next visit to SA
