Kanu Private Cellar & Vineyards
As I popped my first bottle of bubbles to see the New Year in (it was the Kanu Giselle of course), the reality then hit me. 2013 is going to be AWESOME!!!
There are so many exciting things happening this year. China’s curious interest in Kanu wines has become a firmly bonded companionship, sealed by the kiss of Kanu’s Merlot. The first stage of the building project on Kanu is almost completed and by the beginning of October, Kanu will have a brand new tasting area, wedding venue and fine dining restaurant awaiting your arrival.

We have also recently had so many people either coming to the farm or writing us letters; all in awe of the quality of our wines. After the split with Mulderbosch in 2011, Kanu had to be re-established, re-designed and re-furbished. The markets we started distributing our wines were completely new. New faces came to wonder about this perky little African bird, and slowly dared to try Kanu for the first time. And all it took was one sip… and we were friends for life! One client ever wrote:

“As a matter of interest; I have often seen Kanu wines in the bottle stores but was never brave enough to buy it.....the unknown.

Last week I dared to buy a three pack at O R Tambo's duty free shop; Rockwood Red, Natural Sweet Shiraz & Chenin Blanc. I was so pleasantly surprised by the smooth well balanced quality of these wines that I googled Kanu the moment I returned home which was followed by my order to you.

Please convey this message to your boss; you have a true master winemaker in your stable and a superior product to be proud of.” - Cecil G Petersen.

While we wait for the big day when the first of the season’s grapes enter our press, we are doing a few bottlings including those of the KCB and Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 2012. Soon the days of idly sitting around will be replaced by a constant rush of a harvest.

So feel free to pop in at the farm, explore some great wines and witness how things get done during the harvest!

Kind Regards


For those who find it hard to find fine wines on the shelves, please contact Kanu. We will deliver our wines right to your door.
