Kango Co-op was founded in 1926 as the Kango Co-operative Tobacco Company. The tobacco buildings were built in Park Road South , Oudtshoorn. Due to a demand by local grape producers the board of directors decided on the 25 th of May 1973 to establish a wine cellar, the construction of which started in July 1974 right next to the tobacco buildings and the first grapes were taken in during the 1975 harvest.
Today, the harvest yields approximately 3500 metric tons from our members situated in the Klein Karoo, Western Cape and Swartberg Areas.
Today Kango Head office is situated in Van Der Riet Street , which includes the bottling, labelling and distribution as well as the Wine House where the public can taste the fine range of products on offer.
The cellar in Park Road South is where you can find the winemaker and tours of the cellar can be arranged on appointment.
