The Lekker Wines Lockdown Story

Having grown up near South Africa’s magnificent winelands, I have many wonderful memories of wine-tasting with friends and family.

But since then, years of working long hours, weekends and school holidays made it impossible to make new memories with my own family. Enter Covid-19!

With lockdown, I finally had time with the children, but no job!

The time was right to harvest the seeds sown by my experience in the wine trade, in a way that worked for me and my passions: Lekker Wines was born.

I started seeking out delicious wines from lesser-known wineries in South Africa, showcasing the extraordinary range and value my homeland offers.

Although my focus is primarily South African, I have a passion for wines from around the world especially Italy and I love seeking out hidden gems, whilst always remaining conscious of the wine’s origins.

Lekker Wines champions lesser-known, smaller producers, as well as ethical co-operatives who help the little guy break into the market.

But most of all it has to taste absolutely lekker, so only the most delicious wines make it!

I'm confident that you'll find something you love, whatever your tastes or budget. Feel free to get in touch:

It’s International Chardonnay day!! We sell a few and drink them too 🤣 An incredibly diverse grape that ranges from crisp, clean to buttery and oaked and everything in between. A winemaker’s dream grape me thinks… Last night we tasted the Vergelegen Reserve Chardonnay and that swayed a few Chardonnay-dislikers as yes, it is oaked, but with such finesse. Give this grape another go if you are a non-liker, but my top tip would be… spend a few bob to get some good winemaking too!! #lekkerwines #internationalchardonnayday #chardonnay #chardonnayday #chardonnaylover #winelovers ##vergrlegen #warwickwinery #wentevineyards #nuganestate

Yay! Finally a bit of rosé weather in the UK! Raising a very full glass to my SIL who died very unexpectedly on the weekend. She loved taking photos and drinking wine and she will be missed. Today my glass is half full because I celebrate that I am still here (to annoy you all!) and I am toasting Chantelle as I can’t be in SA to mourn with my family. I am sending hugs to you if your glass is half empty today xx #lekkerwines #rosewine #roseweather #atoasttochani #kerpyerchinup #winelovers #sawine #uksummer #winetime #thirstythursday #glasshalffull
