Drankies en Suid-Afrikaanse Wyn Lys

Drinks and South African Wine

At Shebeen, our cuisine and décor are inspired by the vibrancy of the South African culture. 

In keeping with our dedication to creating a uniquely South African experience, Shebeen is proud to boast an exclusively South African wine list. We offer wines from the oldest wine region in the New World.  Cultivation of wine grapes started on the Constantia peninsula in 1659 to service Dutch merchant ships on route to the spice islands in the Pacific. Over the following 350 years, the South African wine industry has seen its share of peaks and troughs. At its historic pinnacle, South Africa’s Constantia region produced some of the world’s most sought after wines. Over time, wine regions have radiated eastward from Cape Town establishing vineyards in a dizzying array of microclimates throughout the southern tip of the African continent. Along the coasts of Constantia, Walker Bay and Elgin, ocean currents funnel cold Antarctic waters that keep the continental heat at bay. Towering mountain ranges dominate Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek Valley which contain some of the oldest soils on earth.  


The modern era of South African wine was stunted by international sanctions against apartheid. While France, Italy and the United States consolidated their hold on international markets, South Africa grappled with freedom and social  justice. With the fall of apartheid, the South African wine industry has shaken the shackles of isolation and has begun reestablishing its rightful place among the earth’s most important wine regions. It is here that traditional European grape varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are finding new expression, and one will find reference points for Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and of course South Africa’s very own Pinotage.  


We are excited to present the leading edge of South African wines here in this list. The following pages contain detailed information on each wine and the regions in which they are grown. It is our hope that after enjoying one or more of the wines Shebeen has to offer, your appreciation of South African wines will match the joy we take in serving them to you.
