The Wine Desk Saturday Club - Cape Town's definitive wine tasting club.

The Wine Desk Saturday Club is a wine club started 2 years ago, which creates special opportunities for its members.  

The Wine Desk designs a morning of visits to wine farms, ending with a lunch on one of them. The visits are never just a tasting room experience. Due to our special relationship with selected wine farms, we are often able to create fun and educational experiences with the winemakers and viticulturists. Our main purpose it to have fun, and if you learn something along the way, it makes it even more special. There are no joining or membership fees, and you are free to bring as many friends along as you wish. Being a wine club, we do not allow children, unless a special day is announced where children are welcome.  

You will also receive notifications on events and specials in the wine tourism industry, such as festivals; shows; specials on wines; and also the odd wine farm looking for personnel.

The Wine Desk Saturday Club meets once a month. You provide us with your e-mail and other contact details, and you will receive a monthly invitation. We all use our own transport giving you the freedom to come and go as you please.

How to join:
Send a return e-mail with your details, including a postal address and contact number. Once we have you on our mailing list, you will be kept informed on all up-coming events. There is no fixed membership, no membership fee - come and go as you please.

'Rules of the game':
If you book, and do not cancel by the Wednesday (close of business) before, you will be sent a bill for the fee for that particular day. The only reason for this: a meal will have been booked for you, and someone will have to pay the costs should you not pitch. No pay, no play.  

Our commitment:
We'll keep the visits interesting, trendy and as inexpensive as possible. Also, any ideas and contributions are welcome.

Contact details:
Speak to either Ligia or Rubina at the Wine Desk at the Waterfront, Waterfront Tourism Centre, Clock Tower Precinct, V & A Waterfront.
