KWV is a great place to try a range of excellent brandies, and also to purchase them at a cheaper price than in supermarkets. The range of wines is also very good, and the staff are great.

Friendly, very helpful, and lovely service. More tasting options than is wise to chose from. Bring a designated driver! Venue is beautifully set out and they sure do a lot more than just brandy.

We did 4 pairs on a Saturday afternoon at the Emporium. Warm and welcoming set up. Highly recommend the brandy & chocolate pairing as the wine and pies (bite sized but full of flavour!) Wonderful way to experience South African Brandy
