Living in the Western Cape, we are privileged to be exposed to many wineries and great wines, right on our doorstep. However, with the busy lives we lead, it’s difficult to get around to all of them and to sample the wines on offer.

CVO Marketing Pty Ltd (Bjorn & Cobie van Oort)  has run various wine clubs to the enjoyment and benefit of hundreds of wine lovers from 1998.

The two “older” clubs are Goblets & Gourmets (1998) and Wine Explorers (2000). In 2009,  a third club called Boland Wine Club was launched to accommodate people from the Somerset West and Stellenbosch region and in 2013 Gastronauts was added.

These clubs educate members about wine, how to enjoy it responsibly and takes them to wineries they might never have discovered on their own.

Joining any of the clubs ensure that you interact informally with other wine lovers, get to know new people and learn more about wine at the same time.  Where-ever possible, wine-makers will be doing the tastings, which makes every outing a unique experience as the different styles and personalities are so diverse.
