About the company of wine people™

the company of wine people™ is one of South Africa’s top wine producers and exporters.

Its core brands include Kumkani – the king of South African wines; Thand, the world’s first Fairtrade accredited wine; handcrafted Welmoed; unconventional Versus and export success Arniston Bay.

With a winemaking team headed by Nicky Versfeld, the company prides itself on providing wines of excellence for every drinking occasion.

Arniston Bay

Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and head for the tranquility of Arniston Bay – an unspoilt coastline that's synonymous with a care-free lifestyle – simply by filling your glass with the fresh, crisp wine.

Inspired by the sunny skies and pristine beaches of the quaint fishing village from which it derives its name, this unpretentious wine is ideal for those carefree, alfresco dining or easy drinking wine occasions – anywhere, anytime.


Located in Stellenbosch, the farm of Welmoed was first granted to Governor Simon van der Stel in 1690.
Over the years, many great wines have been produced in the Welmoed cellar.
Today, Welmoed
maintains its proud winemaking tradition. The brand has built up a solid reputation both in South Africa and selected international markets.

The range is led by varietal specifics, and placing quality ahead of price, these approachable wines combine a proud sense of history with Welmoed’s distinctive carefully crafted approach.


Derived from the Xhosa word meaning ‘king’, Kumkani is an award-winning wine that celebrates South Africa’s rich heritage, eclectic mix of people and abundance of natural resources.

Thanks to the fertile soil, suitable South African climate and winemaker’s excellence, Kumkani is worshipped by wine lovers.


Versus continues to bring a refreshing, fun approach to the enjoyment of wine through its new innovative packaging, alternative advertising approaches and its timeless, stylish, easy-drinking wine.
The brand continues to surprise and delight the trendsetting consumer in this traditional wine world with its innovative spirit, recently launching Versus wine in a pouch.

Even the labels tell a different story!
