I have dealt with Marian & Torque for some years now and they have become friends, they provide an excellent choice of wines, SA mainly for us and have supported our local Classic Car Club Transport Picnic with a stall providing wines tasting and sales. Friendly efficient service, is there anything else you need, I think not.

Always a pleasure to do business with Marian and Torq. The service and the wine of course is just excellent and has been a real treat in these strange times.

I visit a lot of South African wineries and normally bring my faves back home. With current travel restrictions in place it was a treat to stumble across Carte du Vin and their small but perfectly formed selection of SA wines. Clos Malverne Auret is one of my favourite reds ever, thanks for stocking it!

We had the Snow Mountain Sparkling Vonkel at my daughters birthday celebration -limited numbers in the garden -but we think it was the last hot Sunday . The Snow mountain was lovely everyone praised it in comparison to the other sparkling offerings -thoroughly recommend to any one .

Hi Marian,
Great, quick, and easy service once again, summer weather seems to have passed up here for drinking the bottles but they are ready for the sun to come back out 😊
Thanks again,

Thank you for the delivery of Arendsig Chardonnaty. We tried a bottle yesterday, what a cracking wine we may need to have some more in due course.

I can highly recommend Carte du Vin. They offer a personal service, prompt delivery and a good choice of wines that are often not available elsewhere in this country. Marian and Torq are very happy to chat on the phone to help you make your choice.

Love carte-du-vin! I've been buying from Marian and Torquil for several years now. They import some excellent smaller producers from South Africa. Great value and most importantly great service.

Just used carte-du-vin for the first time! Marian was so helpful in assisting me with a local gift delivery for a birthday. This is a great shop and I hope to visit in person some day! If you live in this area, please support them, or if you need to make a remote purchase for someone local there, shop carte-du-vin

Jo - Festival goer

Tasting Event

Dear Carte-du-vin,
I am sure you receive lots of appreciative emails after an event like CarFest.
However, I will continue anyway.
We discovered you at the festival three years ago and have come back each time as irritating repeat visitors who then forget to use you throughout the normal year.
You really are rather marvellous and should be congratulated for it. 
You allow us each time to buy wine, then you keep it cold for us until we drag ourselves away from the fun to collect and drink it.
Not only is your wine lovely but you are all lovely to deal with on the stand too despite being faced with people like us when you have worked for an incredibly long weekend.
We had south African white which was delicious and new to us. Thank you. Three bottles later and we happily stumbled home.
I promise faithfully to actually remember to look at your other wines now that we are all back to normal after the bank holiday festivities.
I hope you had a productive weekend. I sincerely hope it is worth your while to work the stand. We do tell everyone about you throughout the year. I hope you continue to find the event worthwhile.

Hi Marian 

Three sets of Steady Sticks arrived safe and sound, thank you. 
I bought them for friends after having been given a set a couple of years ago. I love them and they have been put to very good use on the Cornish cliffs!

Dear carte-du-vin,

Just a quick message to thank you for your prompt dispatch of the two posters I ordered to be sent to Paris.
They have arrived safely, and my daughter and her partner are delighted with them.  The posters are, as I write, being framed and already have earmarked wall space in Le Tablier Rouge!
Many thanks.

Richmond Park Conservative Association from Barnes London Private Wine Tasting -Fund raising event

Tasting Event

Huge thanks to Marian and Torq for driving all the way to Barnes, SW London, for our fund-raising wine-tasting event. It was a great success and people are already asking about a follow-up later in the year. Torq's description of each of the wines hit just the right note......informative and entertaining. Marian and Torq mingled with the crowd while the wines were being tasted, and this was an added bonus for those who wanted more information. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable evening, and lots of orders still coming in for the wines we sampled. Thank so much for an excellent evening.

What an excellent, innovative and fun idea your 22tipple deal is. We love getting two, great quality, surprise wines each month that you have carefully selected and then delivered to our door. When I signed up I liked the idea of trying wines I wouldn’t have the imagination or time to seek out; what I didn’t expect was the fun of the whole deal. It feels like we receive a present each month and the anticipation of opening the box makes it a really enjoyable experience and that’s without opening the bottles! Your wines are very good and we have genuinely enjoyed every bottle you have selected. We’re enjoying a wider selection of wine and benefiting from your experience, the notes you enclose are concisely informative and help us select the right meal with which to enjoy wine – a great service thank you!

Dear Marian & Torq,
The tasting last night was a brilliant evening. I know it’s your business but that’s not really the point. The welcome, the company, the food and the wine were superb. All was so professional but understated - as things should be.
I really enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for agreeing to return to prepare and present a delicious lunch and fantastic selection of accompanying champagne and wines for our birthday celebration.  As always, Torq’s descriptions of the champagne and wines were very engaging and informative, and we really appreciated the effort you both went to to make it a very special day again.  We hope we can persuade you to return another year!  Thank you again for a really memorable occasion.
Cheers from the Jackson family

The wine arrived safe and sound last Friday and we were impressed with the care taken over packaging

Unfortunately a more traditional British Summer has returned, so our weekend plan to braai and open a few bottles in the garden was postponed. As soon as we have the opportunity to fire up the Weber I'll let you know what we think of the wine. I've already allocated the 2015 South Hill Cabernet Sauvignon to 30 day dry-aged ribeye.

Having tried the Bellevue Malbec at the estate in South Africa I haven't been able to get it here in the UK before. Ordered from Carte-du-vin and it arrived in 2 days. Tried the Malbec with a really good steak and the memories of South Africa came flooding back.
Excellent service and an excellent wine'
