Situated in the Hohenort building of The Cellars-Hohenort, Greenhouse Bar looks out over our lush gardens.
Greenhouse Bar has a range of bespoke cocktails, wines and champagne, craft beer and cider as well as spirits—and now they’ve added a natural wine list to their offering.
Natural wines include organic, biodynamic and minimal intervention wines, and the South African winelands have a plethora to choose from.
Though there’s extensive variety in natural winemaking, the producers share a similar outlook: nurturing biodiversity while embracing and observing nature, rather than fighting to control it.
“The natural wine movement has taken off in Europe where natural wine bars are trending at the moment,” says group sommelier Michelle Michaels.
“No one else is offering a natural wine list at the moment. So at Greenhouse we decided to launch one. A few years ago consumers were too scared to explore theses type of wines. The wine industry has grown over the years, and consumers are exposed to more interesting wines and are hungry to explore new, exciting things happening in the winelands.”
We love this quote from Decanter on natural wines: “As we become increasingly aware of what we eat, it seems bizarre that we are not yet asking the same questions of what we drink.”
