About Us

Stellenbosch Vineyards is one of South Africa's top wine producers and the country's fifth largest packaged wine exporter bringing 80% of our volume to markets around the globe with the rest sold locally.

Its core brands are the successful lifestyle brand Arniston Bay, handcrafted Welmoed, unconventional Versus, the flagship wine Credo and the king of South African wines Kumkani. The company prides itself on producing accessible lifestyle wines for every occasion – from laid back afternoons with friends to more formal celebrations.

Our head office is based at Welmoed a wine farm originating back to 1690. Stellenbosch Vineyards previously known as The Company of Wine People was formed in 2006 as a result of a merger between Vinfruco and Stellenbosch Vineyards. We are members of the SA Liquor Bottlers Association (SALBA) and Wines of South Africa (WOSA).

Our key resource is our people. Our people have a passion for our brands and are wine drinkers who have pride in what we are and in what we do in building sustainable business partnerships with suppliers distributors and customers - all in the persuit of performance excellence, and profit.

Our company aims to reduce reuse and recycle. We encourage staff members to recycle waste in the areas they work in. We have a Waste Water Treatment (Effluent) Plant on our estate to clean the water we use in the cellars and bottling line. For more information about recycling, visit Greenworks. As a company we are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and combat global warming. We have invested in alternative, eco-friendly packaging, including our convenient wine pouch, which takes up less space in a landfill than glass bottles, tetrapaks PET and lightweight glass bottles for core brands.
