Caveau Wine Bar & Deli

92 Bree St. , Heritage Sq.
Cape Town , South Africa http://www.caveau.co.za/thesquare.php
27-21-422-1367

Caveau’s wine list is an enjoyable departure from the red, white, and sparkling norm; it’s divided into Easy Drinkers (try the superb Pierre Jourdan Brut), Discoveries, Food Friendlies, Vintage Reserves, Rarities (like small lots from inner city winery Signal Hill), and Giants. This friendly approach takes the snobbery out of wine tasting, and the bar’s welcoming, cozy atmosphere (set in the city’s only cobblestoned square, between ancient stone walls) makes it a prime place to plunge into South Africa’s bold wines. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that there are 90 wines available by the glass.
