Wine Bar

Cape Town, South Africa

About Openwine

Openwine is a morph between a wine bar and a tasting room centrally located in Cape Town on Wale Street, about a corks' throw from the buzzle and energy of Bree Street. The spot is personified by its owners, a French and Italian couple (charismatic overload) that emigrated to the Cape and now forms an established part of the local wine fauna. The venue is comfortable and simple with several small private rooms and seating areas.

About the Openwine Wine List

The first Enoteca in Cape Town that focus on South African wine only with over 200 wines, all offered by the glass. This is a great spot to pop in for a glass (or bottle) throughout the day, especially since they have an off-consumption licence and the wine can be bought to take with. You will find anything here really, for instance Abrie Beeslaar’s own small production of pinotage or the very, very natural stuff from Elemental Bob.
