Oudtshoorn, the centre of the Klein Karoo and ostrich-feather capital of the world is also the home of Oudtshoorn Cellar.
Way back in 1926 the Kango Co-operative Tobacco company was founded in Oudtshoorn. Some half a century later a wine cellar was established to meet the needs of local grape producers. The first grapes were accepted during the 1975 harvest.
In 2005 Kango Co-op became a company, known as Kango Wines.
In 2011 an exciting new venture began when South Cape Vineyards International Ltd bought Kango Wines in Oudtshoorn. Since then the cellar is known as Oudtshoorn Cellar and produces wines and brandies of the highest quality.
