Vinpro is synonymous with wine in South Africa and essential to the overall integrity and growth of the wine industry in the country.
This organisation builds its work on four pillars - advocacy, services, information transfer and the development of people in the SA wine industry.
Established in 2003, after the restructuring of KWV Group Limited, Vinpro became an independent organisation focused on consultation services in viticulture, oenology, soil science, agro-economy and general management in the wine industry.
As a registered non-profit company, Vinpro represents 2 500 South African wine producers, cellars and industry stakeholders on issues that have an impact on the profitability and sustainability of its members and the industry as a whole. It keeps its members and the broader industry informed of industry trends and technical expertise, and renders specialised services ranging from soil science to viticulture, agricultural economics and transformation, and development.
Vinpro acts as a valuable link in the wine industry chain and aims to provide opportunities for everyone in the industry, but also to assist South Africa to become one of the most dynamic wine industries in the world.
