Kunjani Wines Opens New Tasting Room And Restaurant Near Stellenbosch


After years of careful planning and construction, Kunjani Wines has opened the doors of its brand new tasting facility on the Bottelary wine route outside Stellenbosch.

Designed by well-known interior designer Haldane Martin, the environment artfully mixes local wine country elements with an urban flair, showcasing modern materials and African style. The custom-made furniture is paired with selected artworks by local artists, Krisjan Rossouw and Peter Pharoah.

This is the last sofa to be manufacture by designer Haldane Martin in the iconic and rare Songololo design range. It’s inspired by nature’s creepy crawlies.

The friendly and welcoming tasting room complements what Kunjani stands for – “Hi, how are you?” – and that is exactly how great relationships start. A simple greeting and a great glass of wine between new friends.

The wine brand was conceptualised in 2011 when a chance encounter between German Entrepreneur Paul Barth and  South African Businesswoman Pia Watermeyer birthed a vision for a cross-continental wine.
