Our Fave
Spots to
Not Break
The Bank

Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s is expensive and you don’t have to break the bank if you don’t want to. 

So maybe we should stick to sipping wine and not writing rhymes, but we have compiled a swoon-worthy collection of spots you can take your  Valentine to in February where you can bring your own wine and sip away happily.

Botanical Gardens

Why give a mere bouquet of roses when you can be surrounded by stunning flora and fauna in some of our country’s most beautiful gardens? From Kirstenbosch in the Cape to the dreamy Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in the heart of Gauteng, the options feel endless. Keen to explore outside the city, here are more otherworldly botanical gardens.

BYOB Dining

Are you obsessed with a particular wine or you’ve simply been saving the bottle to blow your partner away? Here’s our pick of delicious dining spots that allow you to bring your own wine:


NATIONWIDE: Hussar Grill – their national footprint means that almost anywhere in SA you can tuck into delicious dining with no corkage. 


GAUTENG: Chez Fong, Momo Soko & Kream – all offer corkage free BYO dining. 


CAPE TOWN: Swan Cafe, The Cousins Italian Restaurant, Hesheng  – a small fee + you’ll be sipping on your own wine in no time.

The Splurge

If you’re in the mood to splurge a little then opt for a lovely picnic experience. We’d recommend heading to Quoin Rock Estate or Norval Foundation (bringing together food, art and wine in the most glorious setting).
