Cathedral Cellar reopens its doors 
– two years after lockdown


CATHEDRAL CELLAR, the heart of KWV and the brand home of its premium wine series, the eponymous Cathedral Cellar wines, celebrates the reopening of its events venue.

A historic and architectural showpiece, Cathedral Cellar was built in 1930, and completed with a dramatic barrel-vaulted roof and stained-glass windows giving the impression of a grand cathedral. It is home to an impressive collection of massive wine barrels, with the capacity to hold 12 000 ℓ of precious liquid. The history of the South African wine industry has been intricately carved on some of these, adding an artistic edge to this remarkable space. It was formally opened as a private dining and events space in 2018, under the custodianship of KWV Ambassador Chef, Mynhardt Joubert. It immediately attracted a share of beguiling events, which quickly tipped this venue as “the most sought-after exclusive venue in the Winelands.”

About Cathedral Cellar: It is a premium wine portfolio and events venue by KWV. The portfolio includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Triptych (a red blend), Pinotage, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The labels depict the Cathedral Cellar with beautiful copper line drawing and honours the cellar’s most impressive feature: its 32 stukvats (barrels) which measure approximately three metres in circumference, some of which tell the stories of the South African wine industry with intricate carvings. It is one of the first and only wine brands in South Africa to embrace augmented reality, which allows users to scan its wine labels for an immersive, “living wine labels” experience via the LABELinmotion app.

About the venue: Chef Mynhardt Joubert’s events in Cathedral Cellar are characterised by their fine balance between the bold and the understated; think bright colours counterpoised with foliage, chandeliers, and French linen tablecloths set with cream porcelain plated with heritage-inspired cuisine. Enthused by the creative, Mynhardt thrives on working closely with his guests to create original and truly captivating events. This sought-after space can be booked for groups of 50 up to 300 by clicking here.
