Fine wines, cheeses and deli snacks.
The original Midlands Wine Cellar, established in 1996, believed to stock the widest selection of wine in Kwa-Zulu Natal (approximately 2500 labels plus stock). A family run business priding ourselves on personal, knowledgeable service.
Sarah goes down to the Cape to work the harvest, assist in the winemaking and then hand picks wines we sell under our own label in addition to recognized labels. In store, we have wine tasting facilities; our regular wine / whisky and brandy tasting evenings have become sought after events!

The Wine Cellar and its deli have evolved into a veritable emporium and family firm. Margie’s sister, Clare Beith also helps in the café outside and runs a curiosity shop, Pandora’s. Having spent eight seasons working in the Cape with cellar master, Riaan Marais, Sarah is a wine fundi herself. Three years ago, she took over several vines from a hobby winemaker in Greytown and planted them in Rosetta. “They’ve survived three winters so are now Rosetta grapes. It’ll be a while before we know if they’ll thrive. If they do, I’ll be making my own wine.”
