With 3 outlets in Lusaka located at Arcades Shopping Centre, Centro Mall Kabulonga and Union Plaza in Makeni, The Wine Shop stocks a vast range of wines from South Africa, Chile, Italy, France, Spain, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia.
Our first outlet was opened in August 2012 at Prinx Retail Park on Chandwe Musonda Road. We later on moved the shop to Arcades Shopping Centre in June 2014. The second outlet was opened at Embassy Mall in October 2015 but unfortunately due to circumstances beyond us we closed this store in March 2017 and opened at Centro Mall Kabulonga in April 2017. The third shop located at Union Plaza in Makeni was opened April 2018.
With a warm and classy décor dominated by the wine bottles, The Wine Shop displays more than 350 varietals from the biggest well-known producers over continents.
Walking into these wonderful wine shops and seeing all the bottles can be a little bit overwhelming, but the knowledgeable staff are always helpful in pointing out what the customers are looking for.
The multitude of varietals offers the possibility to find your everyday wine or one to suit that special occasion and different palates.
The Wine Shop houses premium brands such as Boschendal, Franschhoek Cellar, Casillero Del Diablo, Marques de Casa Concha, Leopards Leap, Beyerskloof, Bellingham, Meerlust, La Motte, Anthonij Rupert, De Grendel, Louis 57, to name just a few.
Some of the wines we stock have received awards such as;
Boschendal wines have not been an exception in the international wine recognition. The 1685 Shiraz 2009 was in 2012 honored with a Gold Medal by the Old Mutual Wine Trophy Show and the Cecil John Reserve Shiraz was awarded with a Silver Medal.
Bellingham achieved great results in the 2018 Platter award book. The Bernard SMV was awarded 5 stars and the rest of The Bernard range 4.5 stars.
Douglas Green Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 and Sauvignon Blanc 2017 achieved silver medals at the International Wine & Spirits Competition. The aim of the competitions is to award excellence in wines and spirits worldwide, encouraging recognition of quality products.
Tokara Directors Reserve 2014 was a recipient of a Double Gold Medal in 2018.

One of the greatest pleasures of wine is that the more you learn and are exposed to it the better it gets and your confidence grows and you are able to compare wines from different countries, regions, producers and vintages and grape varieties.
Wine should be kept simple, be fun and affordable so that all can enjoy whatever the age or demographic position.
Our wine dispensers are always filled with different wines and our customers can enjoy a nice glass of wine whilst they do their shopping at a very affordable price.
Not only do we stock wines alone but also a wide variety of spirits from whiskeys, Vodkas, Gins and rums from top producers such as Pernod Ricard. Our accessories corner is also very well cared for with a variety of fun and exciting accessories.
The Wine Shop has become a permanent and appreciated presence at most social and cultural events in Lusaka and Zambia as a whole offering wine and whisky tastings and promoting the culture of drinking wine.
