Established in 1996, Wine Concepts has evolved into a customer focused boutique wine company. Partners Michael Bampfield-Duggan, Murray Giggins, Derick Henstra and Peter Fehrson all share a passion for wine which culminated in their first retail store in Cape Towns’ famous Castle of Good Hope in 1998. Since then the business occupies premises in Newlands, Cape Town and has a franchise store in Kloof Street, Cape Town. The partners have a combined knowledge and experience of 50 years in the South African wine industry. Our shops have common design elements, providing a look that is contemporary and reflect the clean hi-tech look of modern wineries.

Wine Concepts concentrates on discovering wines that not only deliver quality but value too. We particularly seek those examples that are handcrafted, iconic, everyday and personal. As such we have a varied selection from famous Read more »

  • We're talking about a <$20 CS, and we're concerned about bottle shock and air?I know I'm the iconoclast here.  You can almost convince me that these concepts might have meaning for examples of library or, for lack of a better word, "great" wines, but I have some difficulty that a CS that retails for less than $20 has many detectable subtleties t...

  • We’re back with another cellar of the month. Perhaps unwittingly I’ve taken an editorial turn over the past few months. In addition to writing about wines and wine regions, I’m finding it increasingly interesting reading about the people that make this industry work. Now that of course means winemakers, sommeliers, and writers, but the story is ... Read More

  • I buy wine where I find it.I am familiar with both BevMo and Total Wine & More.  Personally, I buy a lot of wine at Total Wine.  They have pretty good prices and purchase of 6 or more 750ml bottles (and these can be mixed) gives a 10% discount.  Occasionally, I get a coupon that yields additional discounts.  I like their variety and the fact, li...
