The Cellar

Restaurant Mosaic has one of the most comprehensive wine cellars in South Africa, comprising of more than 75 000 bottles of wine under 5 500 different local, as well as international labels. The selection of brandies, including an extensive range of Armagnac and Calvados, are unmatched anywhere else in South Africa. Not surprisingly, it has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.

Our Cellar Master journeys across the globe to bring some of the finest wines, champagnes and nightcaps to the cellar for guests to sample. An exciting element that has been brought to The Orient is our new Champagne Bar, where guests can treat themselves to a flute of champagne whilst enjoying the wide variety of art adorning the walls.

South African sommelier, Moses Magwaza, comes with a wealth of knowledge about our national wines, having travelled to France and explored the South African Winelands. He has completed his Certificate Course at the Cape Wine Academy, as well as his South African Brandy Course and is presently busy with his WSET Level 3. He is also the proud winner of the 2017 Eat Out Wine Service Award, and was mentored by Germain Lehodey himself.

Wines are stored in several on-site temperature controlled wine cellars with a constant humidity of 70% and temperature of 14 degrees Celsius. Our inventory of wines on offer is available to all our staff via a specially designed wine program, providing comprehensive information, tasting notes, accolades, photos, articles, etc.
