Joburg wine lovers who are looking for a new place to perch for after-work drinks need look no further. The team from Warm & Glad has recently opened a fine wine bar next door to the popular eatery. Named Ace + Pearl, the wine haven showcases a wide range of unique South African wines and exposes lesser-known labels to grape enthusiasts.
The stories behind each wine and the winemaker will play a big part of the experience at this wine destination. The choice of vino on offer will change weekly, keeping things fresh for visitors who want to try a glass or bottle of something new and exciting.
Ace + Pearl also plays host to weekly ‘barmen’, which will vary from sommeliers to passionate young winemakers who pour their wines and offer words of wisdom. This gives guests the opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experts while sipping on their wares in the inviting setting.
The food offering includes light meals, tapas and charcuterie boards to accompany the fine wine selections. Not in the mood for a glass of semillon? Ace + Pearl also stocks a range of local gins such as Inverroche and Hope on Hopkins.
