Take a trip to the Wine Route up your street

Monday, 3 June, 2013
South Africa is home to some of the best wine-producing regions in the world. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to hop in a car and visit the vineyards at the drop of a hat. But what about the rest of us?
Well, that’s where Checkers comes in. Known for offering wines from over 80 of the country’s leading estates, Checkers have changed the supermarket wine offering for the better. They offer all their wines at the cellar door price – so it’s just like visiting the estate. But they’ve taken that a step further. They also offer their exclusive Odd Bins range – limited quantities of vintage releases of famous wine brands that are hand picked by a panel of wine experts including Michael Fridjhon. Each of these are given a unique bin number and bottled under their Odd Bins label to bring to you at a fraction of the price.

And now they’ve crossed their borders to bring you over 50 Wines of the World from 8 of the best wine producing countries like French Bordeaux and Argentinian Malbec. But the cherry on top is that they regularly put over 100 of their wines on promotion and offer an online bulk ordering service to help you stock up on all your favourites. Browse through their extensive collection of wines and follow them on facebook to get regular updates on special wine offers.
