Find rare wines from the fine shop just off the road driving to Nottingham Road from Rosetta, 9kms outside the town on your right.

Well worth meeting the owners, why not buy a bottle of red (or white) and let it age a few months.

Although listed on the Midlands Meander Guide I was surprised not to see the Wine Cellar listed on Tripadvisor – as a visit to the Midlands without seeing this “delightful gem” would be incomplete.

The Wine Cellar was the highlight of our trip – this quaint wine cellar and restaurant was so incredible that we could have stayed the whole day taking in all its uniqueness.
On arrival the warm ambiance and relaxed but professional nature made you want to see more. A gentleman by the name of, Warrick assisted us and accompanied us throughout our “little tour” in their wine cellar with over 2 000 different brands of wine. His sincere passion for wine and people had us gripped to every word he said, he exposed us to wines we had never seen on the shelves of any retailers and gave us even more of a passion to explore different wines from our beautiful country.

The cherry on top was the huge selection of flavoured coffee beans that they had available from Caramel Crème to Macadamia nuts. Their service and wine is phenomenal and with the added benefit of ordering wines directly from them we will be sure to keep going back to our little “Gem”.

We had read about the 'Wine Cellar' from reviews on Tripadvisor and so came off the motorway at Mooi River after our stay near Winterton, especially to take the R103 to Rosetta.
Very easy to find, plenty of parking and safe environment, everything about are arrival felt so right.
How can one put into words the exceedingly warm welcome by Margaret, who although was entertaining her family, gave us her overwhelming attention. The 'Wine Cellar' is an incredible place, the original Aladdin's cave but housing such variety of quality wines. Wines and wineries throughout South Africa that we have either visited or tasted/purchased, this was surreal moment in time- a rarest of gems, organised in such a fashion that the complexity for choosing was made so simple.
Margaret, thank you for your kindness, your advice for our onward journey to Nottingham Road and Howick. Your advice of the special places that we needed to visit, and we did.
We selected our wines, we had coffee here too, sat outside in the beautiful sunshine and also took a look in the second hand bookshop on site, we didn't want to leave.
Fantastic array of wines, a gem of a place to visit but what stands in the mind the most was the beautiful nature of the people here, the community spirit and the kindness shown to visitors in a country that we love, we felt your love...

The Wine Cellar is not only an exquisite collection of unique and delicious wines (and more!), but also a place that helps you experience the charm and hospitality of people who understand the richness of a simple life. Great friends are made here.

I reviewed the Wine Cellar back in 2012, and there is no surprise that it is still our best stop in the midlands. The warm, friendly service is always so welcoming and added to that, the massive selection of wines will most certainly impress you.

The Wine Cellars collection is so vast that I managed to find an imported Aperitivo from Italy that I had searched for and had never come across until now. Their coffee collection is also impressive with beans from Columbia, Guatemala and an amazing French roast to mention a few, allowing you the freedom to mix and match.

There is also a cute little antiques shop their, owned by the vivacious Claire, which has everything from antiques, scarves, hats and even home grown and made jams.

Overall, Margie, Warrick and their wine maker daughter Sarah, run an amazing place that like us once you have visited once, no visit to the midlands is complete without stopping here again and again.

The Wine Cellar is one of my favorite stops in the Midlands. They have a, wide variety of wine, various sizes and prices. You may get wine as a take away or sit in. Accommodation is also available, just in case too much fun is had.

The wine cellar stocks a huge selection (particularly of red wine) at very reasonable prices. It was a treat to look around and pick a few wines that aren't readily available in any other shops.
