Wine & Co, the Coolest Wine Shop

Welcome to our series on The Wine Drops Stockists!

Calling all our loyal customers and wine enthusiasts. We are absolutely thrilled to shine a light on and tell you more about one of our Stockists, Wine & Co.

Nestled in the picturesque coastal town of Hermanus, this boutique wine shop is a true gem, overflowing with bespoke wines. During our recent road trip to this charming village, we stumbled upon a moment at Wine & Co that perfectly captured the spirit of the store. I found myself in a wine emergency, desperately seeking guidance and expertise. Gary of Wine & Co was ready to lend a helping hand. Gary's passion, knowledge, and infectious joy for wine shone through as he calmly, effortlessly and confidently pointed me towards the perfect Merlot, swiftly resolving my predicament. It was a testament to his discerning palate and years of experience. Gary's demeanour exudes an undeniable love for wine, knowledge, and sheer happiness, making Wine & Co not just a shop, but a destination where wine enthusiasts can forge a true connection with the world of wines.

Wine & Co takes great pride in its curated selection of wines, primarily sourced from smaller, boutique estates and independent winemakers. These dedicated artisans craft exceptional wines, often in limited quantities, with some even producing unique blends from a single barrel. This exclusivity ensures that their wines remain a well-kept secret, never gracing the shelves of major retailers. Instead, they find their home in specialist shops like Wine & Co, nestled on High Street in the heart of Hermanus.

Established in 1998 by the visionary Bartho Eksteen (now creating his expertise into his "Wijnskool" label), Wine & Co has cultivated a well-deserved reputation as the go-to destination for hard-to-find, small-batch wines. With an unwavering commitment to upholding this tradition, they continue to delight their customers with extraordinary discoveries in every bottle.

While their focus lies in the realm of unique wines, Wine & Co also boasts an impressive selection of well-known wines, craft gins, beers, whiskies, and other spirits. They understand that the world of fine beverages extends beyond wine itself, and they aim to cater to every palate, ensuring there's something delightful for everyone to enjoy. Their dedication to offering variety is truly admirable.

To enhance your experience even further, Wine & Co opens its doors every day, ready to warmly welcome you. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff are always on hand to guide you through their diverse collection, assisting you in finding the perfect wine for any occasion.

No request is too grand or too modest when it comes to helping you explore the fascinating world of wine.

For those unable to visit the shop in person, Wine & Co offers the convenience of local and international wine shipping. This means that you can continue to experience the enchantment of Hermanus and share the remarkable wines of the region with your friends and loved ones, no matter where they reside in the world.
