Our Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz blend is a well-balanced wine with soft and ripe tannins. The typical Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics of juicy black berries, ripe red berries, and mint undertones pair well with the Shiraz's pepper and spice to create a rich, medium-bodied wine.
Best served with a hearty laugh, meaty pastas, BBQ chicken, and game.
Our Sauvignon Blanc presents a complex range of flavors with gooseberry, pear, lychee, and a hint of asparagus aromas. It’s beautifully balanced, with a smooth palate and a lingering, crisp finish.
Best served with friends, charcuterie boards, pastas, seafood, chicken, and pork.
Why the Box
Why the Box
We believe that one should not compromise on quality wine when enjoying either a glass at the end of the day or when sharing with friends. The boxed wine format provides you the flexibility to enjoy wine when the moment is right.
Boxed wines have a smaller carbon footprint than their bottle counterparts. In fact, it takes half as much energy to create a box of wine than to create a bottle. Additionally, since a box of wine is lighter than its equivalent in bottle form, less energy is used in transportation.
Boxed wine stays fresh for up to 4-6 weeks after opening. The spout is designed to release the wine when you press the button, then immediately seal shut once the spout is released, preventing air from coming in contact with the wine inside the box. This allows you to enjoy the wine on your schedule and in moderation without worrying about the wine losing freshness overnight.
With reduced costs in packaging and shipping, boxed wines are generally more affordable than their bottle counterparts. This means that we can offer a quality wine at an affordable price point.
Since boxed wines are lighter than glass, they are easier to transport wherever you prefer to enjoy your wine.
We bet you are wondering, “Where is Cape Vida?” Cape Vida is not a place, but a lifestyle. Cape Vida wines evoke the refreshing aspects of life on the coast; the sound of crashing waves, the fresh sea breeze, the sun-drenched surroundings, and an atmosphere of relaxation.
Cape Vida wines come from the Breede River valley, just a short drive from Cape Town, South Africa. When making the drive from Cape Town to the valley, one will find themselves captivated by the geographic beauty that is the Western Cape. Grape vines planted in perfect rows can be seen running for miles over the soft, rolling hills found at the foot of the Du Toitskloof mountain range.
From harvest through production, Cape Vida wines aim to have a positive impact on both the environment and in the community, through sustainable farming practices and local educational initiatives. When you buy our wines, portions of the proceeds go toward funding the construction of day-care centers, high school and college scholarship programs, adult literacy projects, clinic improvements, and more in the local region.
Cape Vida wines are certified Fairtrade by Fairtrade International. Learn more about Fairtrade International standards at http://www.fairtrade.net. Also, visit Fairtrade South Africa to learn about Fairtrade products and programs in South Africa at http://www.fairtrade.org.za.
