Raise a Toast to Cape Town’s Summer Season!

Wine @ The Mill is The Food Crew’s preferred supplier for wine.

 

The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, where Cape Town’s trend setters enjoy the market every Saturday, is the location of this little gem of a wine shop. Wine @ The Mill is open from Monday to Saturday and and specialises in top producing boutique wine estates, mostly at the cellar door prices.

The Food Crew offers our clients the opportunity to meet with Wine @ The Mill’s owners Tanya Becker and Nigel Cattermole at their shop to select fine wines for their vacation or event, alternatively our clients can order from Wine @ The Mill’s online shop and The Food Crew will liaise with Tanya and Nigel for the collection/delivery of the wine prior to the clients arrival in Cape Town or their function. Once a client has approved the menu by The Food Crew, or given their meal preferences to us, we can get Tanya and Nigel’s advice on which of their wines will be most suitably paired with our food.

 

Tanya’s recommended wines to pair with summer food are featured below, but they will be happy to assist you in making your selection.
