Welcome to Karusa Vineyards, Oudtshoorn

Karusa is nestled in the tranquil village of Schoemanshoek, en-route to the world famous Cango Caves from the Little Karoo town of Oudtshoorn. Well known for its Cap Classique and Mediterranean-styled wines & Craft Brewery. Karusa is a proud family owned, operated and
managed premium wine producer in the Southern Cape

Our Vineyard

After intense soil and climate research we identified the best potential site for our vineyards – ranging between 440m and 540m altitude on a direct south-facing hillside with deep well-drained rocky soil.

Vineyard row orientation is north east/south west for minimal sun damage and fruit zone protection. The vineyards were planted with a 1.5m x 2.4m spacing and with a double 3 wire perold trellising system to ensure good light penetration and a healthy balance between vegetative and fruit growth.

Craft Beers

Made by nature ~ nurtured by man. Karusa not only produces fine wine, but is also credited for pioneering the first full grain microbrewery in the Klein Karoo.
