OUR MENU

The Wine Glass Food Experience

The Wine Glass in Hermanus offers a selection of close to 100 wines available to taste, savour and enjoy by the glass, by the bottle or simply in a tasting flight of six.

Wine from our region has never been easier to appreciate. We pride ourselves in representing a wonderful selection of wines from Botriver, Hemel & Aarde, Stanford, Elim and Agulhas.

Scrumptious plates of food are served from our kitchen where our chef has been inspired by local cuisine to take you on a gastronomic journey.

“This is what Hermanus has been missing!”
