Nothing makes a summer’s day more perfect than a visit to the wine route – bright sunshine, leafy vineyards, and glass after glass of crisp, refreshing, perfectly delicious wine.

Of course, a visit to the wine route in winter is a little less delightful and a lot more soggy. That’s why this season, Checkers will be bringing the wine route to you in the form of their Winter Wine Promotion.

Over 150 estate wines on promotion   

If you’re looking to stock up on wines for winter, look no further than Checkers’ prized collection of over 150 of the finest local and international wines.

Start close to home with a few bottles of South Africa’s finest, such as the featured Chocoholic Pinotage, KWV Merlot or Kanonkop Kadette – just a taste of the variety that Checkers’ range of reds has to offer.

Or if you’d prefer a last lingering sip of summer, sample their range of whites instead, like Waterside Unoaked Chardonnay, Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc or Perdeberg Winery Chenin Blanc.

Whether you prefer a peppery Shiraz, smooth Merlot or fragrant Chenin, you’ll be sure to find just the varietal to delight your senses with the Checkers Winter Wine Promotion.

Savour international flavour with Wines of the World

Feeling a little more adventurous this season? Then travel beyond South Africa’s shores and take your palate on a world of discovery with the exclusive Wines of the World collection.

Featuring over 50 of the world’s best wines from 9 top wine-producing countries such as Australia, France, Spain, Argentina, New Zealand, Italy and Germany, Checkers’ international range is a showcase of the finest wines the world has to offer.

Start your journey of taste today with our featured wines from Chile.

The Frontera Merlot and Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon both took gold at the 2014 Berliner Wein Trophy, while the Casillero del Diablo Merlot boasts the accolade of being the world’s second-most admired wine brand.

With so much international flavour to enjoy, there’s no need to travel to beat the winter blues – just open a bottle of Chile’s finest and take an instant taste holiday.

Enjoy all the tastes of Portugal with our authentic port collection

Checkers is committed to bringing you only the very best – which is why their Winter Wine Promotion
includes not just the finest wines, but authentic port from Portugal as well!

Whether your tastes run to Ruby or Tawny, or blends aged 10, 20 or 30 years, you’ll find just the flavour you’re looking for in Checkers’ genuine port collection – specially chosen for those moments in life when nothing but the real thing will do.

Enjoy total convenience with online ordering

Now for the best part – not only is it easy to find your favourite flavours at the Checkers Wine Route, it’s easy to order them too! Simply visit the Checkers website and you’ll be able to order all your winter wines by the case online and have them delivered to your closest store for collection.

As you can see, there’s no need to venture out into the cold for top local and international flavour this winter – not when the Checkers Wine Route brings all the top wines to you. So stay warm, stay satisfied and say cheers to quality and value with Checkers!
