The Best Wine Specials for Post-Lockdown Delivery in The Cape

The Best Wine Specials for Post-Lockdown Delivery in The Cape

As soon as lockdown restrictions on alcohol are lifted, make sure your home cellar is well-stocked, by taking advantage of these super-duper specials.

The current ban on alcohol (part of SA’s Level 4 Lockdown restrictions) has forced even-the-most passionate oenophiles into teetotaldom, as we patiently await the easing of restrictions, when we’ll be able to clink celebratory glasses of bubbly again, and enjoy wine-splashed lunches in the Winelands…

In the meantime, while we fantasise about the good times, we thought we’d let you in on some of the greatest wine specials around! Some of the Cape’s top wine farms are offering some unbeatable deals, which you can order now, for delivery after lockdown.

Do you know of any other wonderful wine specials? We and our readers would love to know about it. Get in touch with us at hello@insideguide.co.za
