Great choice of tasting options, service a little commercial.
Mar 2020
We chose the ‘cheesecake and MCC’ (3 cheesecakes and 3 MCC) and also the Mentors (5 wines of your choice from a menu) plus we also ordered the cheese platter all to share. Really liked the choice of tastings

The service was ok, friendly, not terribly informative and sadly one of the wines served on the mentors was corked (not slightly either!) we sent it back and the server was very apologetic, but not really what I’d expect in a winery!

We didn’t feel particularly special, it was for us all a little commercial.

The cheese platter was at best average and not all the cheese listed on the menu actually arrived.

"Thank you so much" to the KWV Wine Emporium for high level quality time for both the cellar tour and wine tasting. It was a professional, perfect arrangement with a very good trained staff.

KWV always have a good variety of tasting available including their range of brandies. Additionally prices are cheaper here than in the supermarkets. Very enjoyable

Excellent guidance and experience. Tour Guide very professional. Will recommend this to all wine lovers. You can purchase quality products. Not to be missed when you visit the Paarl Valley.

Poor Service and attitude.
Dec 2019
I have put off writing this review for some time as I wanted to 'give them a chance' but after my experience yesterday I now know they are just simply rude. I have been to the emporium quite a number of times, I live nearby so I pop in for the odd tasting or to buy some wine, which I might add is very good. The attitude on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired. Always abrupt, its a busy spot I understand that but you need to reassure all customers and show them some respect. The 'manager' spoke to me like I was a child and that I needed a receipt before she could issue the wine to be... really, I was aware!!!! No eye contact, no focus on the customer, Miserable , Don't think I will go back. Seems like they cannot manage a busy period.

Unbelievable Function
Mar 2019
This was a Special Event hosted by Silversea Cruises on their 2019 World Cruise. KWV had set up the most beautiful table settings for 200 people in their main hall and provided some of the most superb catering, wines, service and entertainment we experienced on our trip. What a wonderful memorable day.

We did the tasting tour in the middle of the week and it was nice and quiet. The guide was very informative and all and all a worth wile experience. Very interesting how they pair the brandy with chocolate.
Can recommend the experience.
