We loved this store! It is so difficult to find some of these wines and they have them on the shelf. These guys are small and difficult to find and usually not open for tasting anyway. We found Jill and she was wonderfully knowledgeable about Swartland wines. Stop here it will be worth your time for special wines.

Small shop, but manned with staff very knowledgable of the wine industry and experts on local wine producers. Will visit again, and use them to order wines from this area.

An amazing little gem tucked away in the street opposite the hotel. It seems those in the know travel thousands of miles to taste the Swartland treasures and we felt so lucky to stumble upon this wine shop. Stocking only independent wines from the local area, the tasting that was hosted by Jill was so informative and so much fun. Jill is such a ray of sunshine and completely willing to share her extensive knowledge and clear passion for this region's wines. We will definitely be back soon, if not before our trip to the flowers which was personally recommended by our new friend Jill! Looking forward to tasting our selection of Swartlands wine's with a little more background thanks to this fantastic Sunday afternoon surprise :)

We were looking forward to visiting the Wine Kollective to taste the local wines without one of us having to be the designated driver, unfortunately you can only do this at weekends.

A very large choice of Wine from small and independant winemaker, tending to be organic. A great choice, good advise, the place to go for wine lovers....

I was like a kid in a candy store! The selection of Swartland wines is fantastic. The owners are so knowledgeable and even though they were closed, when we walked in, they offered us a wine tasting and some great tips and stories on the wines. Needless to say we bought too much wine but can't wait to try them all. Cheers to you.

A quirky wine shop with a magnificent selection of Swartland wines incl. Annexkloof and Mullineux (a now much sought-after shiraz). Find wines here you'd never have known about otherwise. Be bold and try them! A great range in price to choose from. Informed and friendly service. Always a bottle or two open for a quick taste too. Also wines from the region's more well-known wine-makers such as Eben Sadie and Adi Badenhorst. Note: they have moved and is now in Main street, on the opposite side from the Royal Hotel.

I left this wonderful small aladdin's cave of delights with a much emptier wallet but what a joyful hour I spent being tempted to buy yet another local bottle of wine. The owner is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about informing her patrons about the relatively but excellent local wines. Don't miss this.

Did you enjoy your wines at the Royal Hotel like we did? This is the place where you will find most of them to take home.
