The Saxon’s remarkable wine collection is the culmination of the Sommeliers’ wealth of experience and the outstanding wine programme that we have established.

We believe that the wine list should be a constantly evolving work in progress, a philosophy that is mirrored by our food menus. Rather than making drastic changes, we continually review and identify what works well and what could work better. To this end we are continually exploring, tasting and comparing classic local vintages with the finest international wines.

Deep within the heart of the Saxon lie the Wine Cellars. Our Sommeliers’ extensive knowledge of wines enhances the enjoyment of our guests’ culinary experiences. The Sommeliers spend a great deal of their time in the Cellars, testing and tasting the wide range of proudly South African wines as well as classic international vintages to ensure that the perfect wine is paired with every meal.

The Saxon’s White and Red Wine Cellars are ideal for hosting small dinner parties for a private celebration. Reminiscent of authentic European and Cape wine maturation cellars, these unique venues capture the romantic attributes of the history of wine, adding to the ambience of these rustic spaces. Wine lovers will definitely appreciate the distinctive dark wood and wine aromas for an intimate and memorable dining experience.
