At Marianne we are privileged to have two state of the art boutique wineries, each perfectly equipped to elaborate fine, hand crafted wines. Influenced by our French heritage and international savoir-faire, we strive to make French style wines with a touch of South African vibes. At Marianne we believe in natural, minimal intervention winemaking, with the firm believe that the secret to a great wine lies in the vineyard and in the beautiful landscape that surrounds it.
Our Property. Est. 2004, the Marianne Estate is a 36-hectare boutique wine estate located on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain. The estate features 25 hectares of vineyards, Tasting Room & Cellars, Luxury Accommodation and the Floreal Brasserie.
A Tradition of Winemaking. Christian Dauriac, the proprietor of the Marianne Estate, has been making wine in Bordeaux for over 30 years. He currently owns three Chateaux in Bordeaux: Destieux (Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion), Montlisse (Grand Cru) and La Clemence (Pomerol). Christian regularly brings in specialists from France to
lend expertise with the winemaking and viticulture.
Terroir. Climate, soil, altitude and slope orientation are essential elements required in capturing as much varietal character as possible. The climate is mild to warm with southern winds, ensuring grapes are cooled to optimum temperature for maximum character and flavour. Soils are predominantly medium textured and an average annual
rainfall of 800 mm ensures minimal irrigation.
Vintage: Climatic condition leading up to the harvest was warmer and drier than usual. This resulted in slower ripening due to thinner grapevine canopy and lower water levels in the soil. Accordingly yields were naturally lower due to smaller berry size, which consequently, also lead to crisp small berries concentrated in flavor producing wines with an abundance of fresh fruit aromas and a fresh, crisp pallet.
Winemakers comments: Amara means “grace, mercy, kindness” in the native lgbo language of Nigeria. Symbolizing our appreciation for the African terroir and the wines we can produce from it. The AMARA Chardonnay is a fruitful white wine that reveals its African nature on the nose through subtle notes of honey bush native to the Cape’s
vegetation, fresh citrus and stone fruit aromas. The pallet is balanced with roundness, minerality and a crisp finish.
Standard, non-interventional, natural winemaking procedures were used to elaborate this wine, with the firm belief that the secret to a great wine lies in the vineyard and in
the beautiful landscape that surrounds it. The grapes were picked in the early morning hours so that they arrive cold and fresh at the cellar. Berries are crushed into a
pneumatic press, where the grapes are softly pressed to separate the fresh flavorsome juices, almost green in color, from the grapes skins. The clean juice is then fermented
and aged in stainless-steel tanks at a low temperature to ensure that fruity, varietal and fermentation aromas are not lost during the fermentation.

Having partnered with hundreds of stores in South Africa, there's (almost) always a Pick-up Point near you: often with opening hours of up to 15 hours per day - some (like fuel stations) are even open 24/7!
Why not give it a try today?
Well, because we also have to pay for delivery. And that money needs to come from somewhere.
Shipping costs money and we don't want to go bankrupt.
We have debated the merits of offering free shipping at length but the reality is that – without some magic source of free cash – the only place that money can come from is from our customers.
That leaves us with two options: hide it in the price of the product, or show it. We decided to be transparent and show it. This lets us cut our prices to the bare minimum and show you the best possible savings.
If we had incorporated the shipping cost into the price of an item, you’d pay double whenever you order more than one item but, in reality, the cost of shipping doesn’t necessarily go up.
By the way: the actual shipping charge you pay is a best-effort approximation of what shipping is going to cost us. As a result, ordering a 3kg item to Sandton or Cape Town may work out cheaper than a 75g iPhone cover to Springbok. Don’t blame us; blame the vast expanse that is our beautiful South Africa.
We'd love to offer free shipping. But we can't, because that means turning our company into a loss-making enterprise.
We rarely hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.
We're not like other online shops with a fixed catalogue and tons of stock. Instead, most of our products never come back to our website again. That’s how we want it, as it keeps us fresh and unpredictable (win #1).
So, after you (and lots of others) have placed your orders, we go to our suppliers and place a massive, single order. Our suppliers love this, as it keeps things simple and moving along smoothly. Happy suppliers equal low prices (win #2).
Since we don’t hold stock, we can work with a cheaper, medium-sized warehouse, instead of a mega-warehouse (win #3) and we’re saving lots on not needing any processes involved in handling and returning unsold stock, allowing us to offer better deals (win #4).
The practice of not holding stock is one of the core principles behind OneDayOnly’s success. That, and our sparkling personalities of course.
