The name Kanu is from a legend told by an old Xhosa man who was raised in his grandmother’s house on the Goedgeloof farm. Day after day, he would tell of the mythical bird he had seen flying over the farm. According to him, if the bird’s shadow touches your crop, you are promised a bountiful year’s harvest! Kanu is established as a boutique producer of quality wines with grapes sourced over a wider area in the Western Cape. The diverse terroir in the Western Cape allows us to now select grapes suited to the best area.
