“Great way to sample South African wines”
Review of Cellar in the city

Reviewed 19 March 2018

Cellar in the City is a small wine shop located in the handicraft market at the Cape Town waterfront. We stumbled across this place by accident end ended up with an amazing bottle of wine. We returned another time, and again we were served some exquisite wines and given some more recommendations for purchases. This little outlet offers wine flights for tasting, as well as some wine and food pairings. Staff know what they are talking about, and are extremely hospitable. For those visiting the waterfront, Cellar in the City is a worthwhile stop for a glass of wine, and a great opportunity to pick up a bottle or two.

We came here last night and did the Cheese Pairing tasting. Guided through by Zelda who really knows her stuff, she found us some fantastic wines and she didn't hold back on filling each glass! Fantastic and would recommend for anyone visiting the area.

Had a wonderful time with Anton and his team. Introduced us to wonderful unknown wines of exceptional quality and price. As all the restaurants disappointingly seem to have the same wine list this is such a good place to visit. Friendly and helpful staff, great venue. Excellent wine. Made friends here.

Just lovely people. I could not justify a tasting as I was driving but my daughter wanted to try the cheese and wine pairing. They served effectively a double serving anyway, plus an extra glass of a wine I expressed interest in. Just fun, spent a lot of time with us, showed us other wines and gave more samples. Simple setting, but on reflection enthusiasm and friendliness made for a better evening than the formal tasting at the beautiful La Motte in Franschhock.
