KWV was founded in 1918 to represent the interests of the South African wine farmer.
Although considerable development and adaptation has taken place over the decades, the company's objectives are still in line with the original mission of the organisation.
KWV is owned by producers and employees and strives to be a world-class company which produces and supplies quality products of the vine and associated services to global markets.
Thereby, it contributes to the stable growth of the South African wine industry, benefit in all its shareholders.
The summers are long and warm, and rainfall enough to make irrigation advantageous only in exceptional circumstances.
A large variety of grapes are grown in Paarl, of which Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc have the best potential.
The Paarl district includes the wards of Franschhoek, the 'cuisine capital' of the Cape which has retained its French Huguenot character..
Wellington, which supplies over 90% of the South African wine industry with cuttings, has some 30 grapevine nurseries, situated here due to the appropriate soils and warm summers.
In winter, snow sometimes covers the mountain tops and night temperatures are generally cooler than at the coast some 45 miles away.
