At RAATS, we are dynamic. We focus our energy on continually adapting to our ever-changing environment. We don’t follow trends, and we’re certainly not about pleasing a crowd or a critic. Instead, we specialise in making wine that is fine-tuned to reflect its origin.
If you join our wine community, there are no sign up fees or life-long commitments – only benefits. You join for life, and enjoy what you want, when you want. Why? Well, you’re a wine lover interested in what you drink and the story behind each bottle. You’re just like us.
Welcome to the RAATS PRIVATE CELLAR
A showcase of our consistency. A space for our community. A collaboration by nature.
BI-ANNUAL CURATED CASE:
Sign up to receive access to our members-only bi-annual mixed case of 6 bottles. Twice yearly (in May and November), you will receive a carefully curated, season-appropriate mixed case of wines (selected by Bruwer and Gavin themselves). Some of the bottles in the case will be unique wines not available for purchase by non-members, including library stock and limited edition wines.
As a member, you will have access to our Private Cellar. This means we will offer rare and small-volume wines (not available anywhere else) and share them with you on allocation. Some of these wines will include our Eden High Density Single Vineyard Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, our Lone Wolf Cinsault and our magnums.
We will be opening our Private Cellar to our members to give you access to rare, limited edition, award-winning wines – for example, our sold-out 96 Robert Parker MR de Compostella 2016 and our B Vintners Liberté Pinotage.
Some of our finest wines are released on allocation. By becoming a Raats Private Cellar member, you will be given priority ordering some of our most in-demand wines, with occasional special release offers included.
Enjoy free delivery of Private Cellar cases to main centres in South Africa. International orders will be charged customs duties and taxes.
ANNUAL PRIVATE CELLAR EVENT:
Come toast to the end of harvest and enjoy a celebratory feast with our winemaking team at our private cellar event where some of our finest Raats wines will be served alongside freshly-prepared, harvest inspired dishes.
Come enjoy a complimentary private tasting at our wine farm for you and up to 3 of your friends.
How it works
There is no joining fee to become a Raats Private Cellar member. All you need to do is complete the sign up form so we have your details on file and can communicate with you privately.
Twice a year, we will offer a bi-annual mixed case (6 bottles). During the months of May and November, you will receive a carefully curated, season-appropriate mixed case of wines (selected by Bruwer, Gavin and Mzo themselves). Some of the bottles in the case will be unique wines not available for purchase by non-members.
Approximately 2 weeks before delivery you will receive notification of delivery and information about the wines in the case. At that time you may add additional wines from our range to your order for free delivery. You will then be invoiced for your order and on receipt of proof of payment, we will courier the wines to you. Delivery will be within 3 – 5 working days.
