Cru Wine Bar and Deli in Hillcrest, just a short drive west of Durban, opened recently to much acclaim. The Wine Bar is owned by Riaan and Willem and is a new concept to Durban - boutique and carefully selected wines are sold by the glass from self-service cooler machines accessed by a smart card which has a pre-loaded value. As the card value diminishes, it can be topped up to a value of your choice. In this way you can afford to have a tester amount, a half glass or full glass of expensive wines you may not wish to ever buy by the bottle. There are over 40 wines to choose from as well as a selection of fine whisky and cognac.
