KWV Sensorium

Entry is free, wine tasting will be charged at our current rates

For more than 50 years, KWV has collected a portfolio of artworks by some of South Africa’s greatest artists, and for the first time ever this beautiful collection will be opened to public viewing at the brand new KWV Sensorium.
The collection consists of approximately 100 paintings, wood carvings and drawings and includes works by Gregoire Boonzaier, Irma Stern, Jacob Hendrik Pierneef and Piet van Heerden.

The purpose of the Sensorium space is three-fold
  • To open up KWV’s art collection and archive to the public, to tell the “KWV story” through its art and heritage
  • Act as a platform for a new approach to understanding art and wine through the unique concept of “art and wine pairing”.
  • For many people, engaging with the disciplines of art and wine is often fraught with confusing tasting notes and academic explanations - hence the idea to complement the experience of tasting a wine with that of viewing an artwork, and utilising interactive technologies to allow the viewer to make sense of both what they taste and what they see on their own terms.

Visitors will be able to view the art collection, immerse themselves in an “art and wine pairing experience”, and also enjoy a tasting or glass of several of KWV’s award winning wines and brandies.
