KWV is a leading South African wine and spirits producer founded in 1918. It began as the company that united wine farmers during the industry’s fledgling and struggle years and is today a global player. For most of its brands, KWV uses fruit from diverse vineyard sites across the winelands. In producing its wine ranges, grapes are transported to the KWV cellar in Paarl. Its facilities cover approximately 32ha, and at the heart, the famous Cathedral Cellar, built in 1930. The KWV Emporium provides the opportunity to taste the collection of KWV Wine, KWV Brandy and other Spirits; enjoy food & wine pairings; and participate in cellar tours.
