The Largest Collection of South African Wine in One Place

  • Sarah Lacamoire

Residing in Cape Town, South Africa’s stylish Victoria & Alfred Waterfront district, the Wine Loft is a stellar feature at the new One&Only resort, where guests come to enjoy not only the most luxurious accommodations in the city but also the world’s largest collection of South African wines. Adjacent to Gordon Ramsay’s Maze restaurant, the Wine Loft houses more than 5,000 bottles of wine, including 450 labels and nearly 100 wines by the glass. Wines are organized by terroir and regional style—rather than labels and brand names—and include both rare, older vintages (Meerlust Rubicon 1993) and new, boutique-style offerings (Eben Sadie’s Palladius). At the Chef’s Table, guests can partake in a sumptuous, 10-course, wine-paired meal or participate in special tasting sessions hosted by local wineries. For those wishing to expand their South African wine erudition, One&Only’s introductory Wines of the Cape course is an excellent option. (+27.21.431.5230, www.oneandonlyresorts.com)
