About Us

GETWINE is a South African Wine Portal which allows you to easily buy superb South African wine online and have it delivered to your door.

GETWINE is based in Cape Town and our team is friendly and highly knowledgeable about South African wine. We are committed to giving you the best service and endeavour to make your online experience a truly memorable one.Although we started out focussing on unlabelled wines, our focus shifted to selling both unlabelled and labelled wines from top wine farms at reduced prices.

Unlabelled South African wines came into the market after the Rand strengthened against foreign currencies a number of years ago. Many top wine estates could not export their annual wine harvests to European and American shores, resulting in a local surplus of high quality wine. Due to the weaker exchange rate over the last few years there is now lower stock of unlabelled wine, but Getwine is committed to giving customers the best possible prices, whether labelled or unlabelled.

Our Story

We originally sourced fine wines from top wine estates and sold them to friends via Van Riebeeck Wine Promotions e-mail marketing. After experiencing phenomenal growth over a 24-month period, we decided to establish GETWINE.CO.ZA, an e-commerce site, in May 2005 to make our unlabelled wines available to all South Africans. A few years later we also started selling labelled wines at reduced prices.

Apart from our unlabelled and labelled wines we also provide information on wineries, winemakers, and further information relating to South African wines.
