Life is Grape is …

A small Wine shop situated in the heart of the old town, Walmer, Port Elizabeth. Our passion for this store is to introduce wines from smaller wineries to the people of the friendly city. We do not claim to be wine connoisseurs, as our mission is to provide a comfortable and relaxed environment in which you can experience and buy the wines that YOU like.

The Uniqueness that is Life is Grape

Not only do we sell wine, we sell gifting for any occasion. Should you wish to personalise a bottle, we will create that special label you want. We have very unique packaging for wine that complements any gift. We offer delicious cheese platters with only the best ingredients and also take away platters when you wish to chill at home with your favourite bottle of wine.

There are also fun items to be purchased that show the world your love for wine, including T-shirts and funky sneakers. We stock the best Belgium chocolate in town, made locally by Sjukla, Handmade chocolates from Babycakes in Cape Town and even Toffees from Darling.

Our staff, although not connoisseurs, have a genuine love for wine and are passionate about relaying the knowledge they have gained to our customers. We pride ourselves in understanding that not all wine lovers have the same tastes and that their thoughts and suggestions are important to us.

I don't need a reason to enjoy a little wine. I just need a glass.
