Married Two Wine was founded by two individuals passionate about wine and one another. They invite you to join their explorative and fun-filled vinous journey that will help you discover your own. Whether you just enjoy drinking a good glass of wine, want to improve your wine knowledge, wow your guests, or looking at elevating your own wine brand, we can assist.
Oh hello there!
If this is your first visit to our page, head over to our Facebook page and share your food and wine idea for Date night to still stand a chance of winning a Date Night hamper. But, of course, if you are a regular MarriedTwoWiner, share your wine wisdom anyway to win yourself a fancy dinner at home. Easy as that.
For December, we are bringing you our Christmas wine wish list with new features, including Almenkerk, Nederburg, Jordan, Rupert & Rothschild and Ernie Els Wines, all the way until January 2022.
It has been a quirky November with odd rain, humid spells and the omicron variant raiding liquor stores in a consumer frenzy and fear of running out of wine. We get it – playing jingle bells with empty bottles is no fun, but you need to do your part and get vaccinated – not only for your safety but for those around you too.
At least the wineries got a little injection in case the hammer falls on what we fear being another alcohol ban. But let’s remain optimistic that both the travel ban and luring possibility of an alcohol ban will soon be history. So focus on filling the cellar and enjoying it with those you love.
Thank you for all the support in 2021. We wish you all a blessed Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2022.

Malawian born, I remain a barefooted child at heart. Since graduating from Visual Arts at the University of Stellenbosch, wine became an integral part of my career. I celebrate both my personal wine experiences and deep respect for nature through every piece I create.
I clearly remember my first Nedbank CWG pre-auction tasting 15 years ago; the anticipation building as guests arrive in the tasting hall and the chattering growing louder as the...
