The latest addition to this remarkable establishment is an elegantly designed and stocked wine shop offering the majority of the wines from the Restaurant cellar. Champany Cellars is an Aladdins Cave of wines. The bottles are mostly displayed on their sides so as to keep the corks wet and reduce any deterioration in quality; Champany insist on cork closures. It is invidious to mention any wines in particular but there is a fine selection of White Burgundies where you can savour Chardonnay as its classical best. Or delve amongst the several Limited Edition wines of the Cape Winemakers Guild or the many Single Malt Whiskies from the Highlands and Islands.
While the emphasis is rightly on the Worlds Fine Wines, the carefully selected range of good quality Champany House Wines bottled and shipped direct from the winery in South Africa is noteworthy.
These include 3 very pleasing red, white and rose wines for everyday drinking and a Blue Label range of 4 single variety wines for more special occasions. Many customers buy cases of 6 bottles or more for drinking at home.
