The latest ban on the sale of alcohol has left many South Africans high and dry, and our wine industry on its knees. With more than 300 million litres of wine still in stock from the 2020 harvest, and the new harvest already pending, the Western Cape’s world-renowned wineries are at their wits’ end.

However, some producers are thinking ahead and offering incredible discounts and special offers on wine that can be ordered now for delivery once the ban has been lifted. From super specials on Simonsig bubbly to fantastic discounts on top-notch wines, here are some great deals to buy now and enjoy later.  

Simonsig – 50 years of Sparkling Special

One of the oldest wine farms in South Africa and the first to produce a Cap Classique bubbly, Simonsig is synonymous with the history of South African wine. In celebration of 50 years of producing Cap Classique wines, they are offering a brilliant bubbly special.

Wine lovers can order six bottles of their top-selling Kaapse Vonkel Satin Nectar MCC for R630 instead of the regular price of R990. It is also available in rosé and there is free delivery on two cases or more.
