“It’s like Christmas morning every time a club pack arrives. Unpacking each bottle, examining the labels, putting on the neck tags ... I’m like a kid in a sweet store.”
—M O’Donoghue, Newlands
“I don’t know if you have access to just how long I’ve been a member of your wine club, but it’s many years. Many years of wonderful good wines. I’ve genuinely never had a bad wine...”
—Walter Passet, Blue Horizon Bay
Why Join a Wine Club?
started the Wine Club in 1986, long before the days you could buy wine online. Why? Let’s face it. Wine can be intimidating. It’s difficult to try new ones and be sure they are top quality. But, how best do you do this?
Johan Malan, winemaker of Simonsig received the Winemaker-of-the-Year Award at the annual Wine-of-the-Month Club Winemaker Awards Lunch, held this year at Spier.
The annual awards celebrate and reward winemakers whose wines have been selected by the Club’s 10 independent panellists in the past year.
The Wine-of-the-Month Club selects hundreds of wines, of different types and styles, each year—all of which are assessed blind by the panel—and delivers them to its members, in different wine programmes. Johan had the most wines selected, 10 in all.
