The concept behind this intimate wine bar and deli afforded the seasoned and enterprising owners an opportunity to bring the wine route to your doorstep
The hosts’ philosophy behind Caveau is that they want their guests to drink quality wines all the time and to assist with this, they have brought down the mark-up on the more expensive wines.
After selecting good wines for their character as much as their quality, Caveau’s wine list presents these wines in categories of mood and context, not simply based on variety.
With light-hearted categories such as Time out wines or Rich and robust, you can choose a wine for winding down, revving up or according to different styles of food.
Unique and practical, the list allows guests to enjoy some of the finest selections from the Cape wine route while also encouraging new wines.
This approachable format fits with Caveau’s philosophy that at the end of the day, wine is made to be enjoyed, not to confuse people.
No visit will be complete without a hedonistic free-fall into Caveau’s seductive selection of local cheeses and cured meats, where the delights on offer have been carefully selected to compliment the wines in true French style.
Although die-hard favourites like beef cubes and béarnaise, lamb samoosa’s with tzatziki and prawn tempura are always available, Caveau’s menu changes daily.
Offering a range of tapas and main course options, each dish is made from only the freshest ingredients sourced from top suppliers in the Cape.
Caveau’s star attraction is a temperature controlled cellar, crammed with the Cape’s very best wines
