About Us

VBwines.co.uk is the online store of Vivat Bacchus, a London Restaurant and Wine Club that has been proud to offer some of the best South African wines since 2003. A few years ago, the long term relationship with some of the most respected & well-known wineries in South Africa set the grounds for a great wine-making partnership. The Vivat Bacchus own wine label was born and has since grown to a range of nine wines! 

We have selected a list of the best selling wines from our wine list for this website, of course including the range of VB wines.

If you are looking for great wines that offer an amazing value for your money, you have come to the right place!

Charity drive

Vivat Bacchus own-label wines all started when co-owner, Gerrie Knoetze, decided to work with SA wineries to make our own wines of which there are now nine and counting.

The Kaapzicht wine estate was the first winery that VB partnered with. Gerrie worked with winemaker Danie Steytler to come up with a wine that retained the essence of what Kaapzicht wines are about but was unique to VB and suited the VB vibe. So the big favourite VB Chenin Blanc was born. Since then we have worked with several wineries that make our own-label wines to produce wines unique to VB that are highly drinkable but also affordable to the customer.

In addition, since 2017  50 pence from the sale of every bottle of Vivat Bacchus own-label wines has gone to charitable projects in South Africa. Realising that VB could help with improving the community life on the wine farms we decided to donate to the charitable projects on the Kaapzicht wine estate. There is now air conditioning and a new floor in the Kaapzicht community school as a direct result of the donations. Since then we have collaborated on another great project that identifies children in SA with hearing and vision problems – donations have been made to the HearX foundation 3E (Ears and Eyes for Education) project in the Cape. In total more than £10 000 has now been channelled to these charities in the past few years; something we are very proud of but the final thanks goes to our VB customers.
