Free tastings from boutique wine farms every Friday

CLOSED: Divine Wine Boutique focuses on smaller less commercial family-owned vineyards

Last updated: Thursday, 4 August 2022 


Divine Wine Boutique seeks out the smaller, less commercial wine farms in the Cape and brings their best cultivars to the glasses of wine lovers in the city. What’s more, it spotlights a different farm every Friday (from 5pm to 7pm) so you can meet their people, talk about the wine and, most importantly, taste it – for free.

Divine Wine Boutique is tucked away in Long Street, you won’t find it unless you know about it. The business began in 2019, with the goal of making wines from the Elgin Valley accessible to Cape Town.

Now it features smaller, boutique wine farms from around the Cape and it brings that farm experience to city dwellers. Come to the free tasting events every Friday and you’ll get to meet representatives from the farm, who mingle and talk about their favourite cultivars.

Keep an eye on its Instagram feed to find out who will be hosting this week’s tasting. Image: Karl Hildebrandt


The wine-tasting bar also offers tapas and platters to share. There are 9 tasty bar dishes on the menu, ranging from mushroom arancini served with garlic aioli to Korean-inspired chicken wings glazed in gochujang sauce. Or order a hot platter with potato samosas, spanakopitas and other tasty snacks. The Asian Vegan platter includes spring rolls, wontons, cucumber salad and a range of Asian-inspired sauces.

If food and drink orders are placed on the night, tables can be reserved, otherwise it’s first come, first served. Image: Karl Hildebrandt


Divine Wine Boutique is open: Monday to Friday, 9am to 10pm
Find it: 35 Lower Long Street | Cape Town
