The Champany cellar and the Champany Wine List are ever-changing and developing. Our Cellarmaster and sommelier taste, select and carefully cellar every wine on the list; a list which is curated to complement our menu. Family history accounts for the backbone of the list being South African.
Over many years Clive Davidson built relationships with independent producers from his homeland, South Africa.
Great Cabernet Sauvignon from Thelema and De Trafford, Bordeaux blends including Cobbler's Hill from Jordan and Paul Sauer from Kanonkop, Pinotage from Simonsig and Spier ensure that Stellenbosch takes its rightful place on the list.
