Fountain Vergelegen, South Africa

Plenty more wine notes and recommendations (plus some foodie bits) to come; but if all this chat about the marvels of South African wine make you wanna try something more interesting than can be found in your local offie here is a list of the top South African wine retailers in the UK (in no particular order):

  1. SA Wines Online – a huge and excellent selection and available by the bottle. Take advantage of £10 off your first order.
  2. SWIG – this West London based merchant offers a smaller but quality based range
  3. Stone, Vine and Sun – a smaller, but quality selection from this award winning independent
  4. Amps Fine Wine – a good selection ranging in price from £5.50 a bottle up to one at £59.50! Most in the quality/affordable range mind.
  5. M&S Direct - come here for small parcels that never make it to the stores. Currently offering 25% off all South African wines

Incidentally the photograph was taken in the gorgeous gardens at Vergelegen, South Africa.

    I’m fairly unfamiliar with imagery from South Africa and I’m pleased to say I’m interested by it. There’s a particular aesthetic to the pictures you’ve shown which resonates with me.

    I’m glad to see that you had an amazing trip to SA – I hope it impressed!
    If and when you’re out here again we must get together for a glass of great SA vino.
