A Stylish, New Look Reflects Kunjani’s True Character

A gesture that symbolises a greeting between friends and a simple yet clear message on a wine label that invites people to enjoy the good life! This is what Kunjani Wines wishes to convey to all and sundry with their newly designed and updated wine labels.

“At Kunjani we are all about greeting guests with a warm welcome, and the hands on the label represent a greeting between friends. Kunjani means ‘Hi, how are you?’ and that is exactly how friendships start,” says Pia Watermeyer, Kunjani’s co-owner.

Kunjani Wines is a new boutique winery high up on the Bottelary Hills outside Stellenbosch where good food, fine wine and luxurious accommodation combine to truly reflect the good life … and the true character of this spectacular place where love and passion are reflected in every creation.

  1. Apart from the most beautiful season of the year, Spring, what was the inspiration behind your new menu for this season?

Dukkah, Rooibos, Springbok and Chakalaka flavours are combined with elements of spring such as asparagus, strawberries, coconut and passionfruit to create wholesome food with seasonal freshness.Continue reading
