South Africa has a wonderful climate for growing grapes – and for enjoying wine! Locally produced wines rank among some of the best in the world and are relatively inexpensive when compared to bottles from overseas.
To make it easier for you to enjoy South African wine, you’ll find a very wide range of wines on bidorbuy, helpfully categorised by type to let you quickly find the exact bottle you’re looking for.
There’s an old saying that a day without wine is like a day without sunshine. The good news is that here in SA, we’re blessed with both – and they go very well together! Whether you’re new to wine or something of a connoisseur, we’re bound to have something that will tickle your tastebuds.
The perfect drink for any occasion
From unwinding after a long day at work to a date night in, wine goes with every moment you can imagine. There’s nothing like getting home, kicking off your heels or loosening your tie, and pouring a glass as you mark the point where the day ends, and the evening begins.
Wine makes brunch indulgent and picnics extra special. Sip a glass while you stream your favourite series, or as the smoke rises from the braai. Wines – and especially champagne – are traditionally associated with celebrations, but you don’t have to wait for a birthday or anniversary before you dust off the corkscrew.
At bidorbuy, we love finding reasons to celebrate the everyday things – passing an exam, getting a tax rebate, or catching up with a friend you’ve not seen in a little while. Wine is perfect for marking the occasion – all you have to do is choose!
Chicken or beef?
With so many different varieties available, it’s not hard to get the perfect match for every meal, from a crisp summer salad in the garden to a hearty stew on a winter’s night. Whatever’s on the menu, there’s a wine to go with that!
For some people, wine pairing is an artform – but ultimately it’s about what works best for you. You’re probably familiar with the rules about which wines you should have with fish, curry or even dessert, but sometimes breaking the rules is more fun than sticking to them.
If you enjoy cooking, try adding a splash of wine when you’re busy in the kitchen – it adds great flavour to all sorts of dishes. Drinking a glass while you’re standing over the stove can also make the whole process even more enjoyable.
Whatever you’re eating, whoever you’re spending time with, opening a bottle of wine can make the moment even more enjoyable. Shop for wine your way on bidorbuy – and don’t forget to take advantage of the special offers in our weekly Wine Wednesday promotion!
