Integrated Production of Wine (IPW)

The Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) is a voluntary and industry-wide environmental sustainability scheme established by the South African wine industry in 1998.

With a proactive approach to the implementation of environmentally sound practices, KWV is fully committed to IPW’s values. Our company is evaluated annually by IPW and receives outstanding ratings year-on-year.

Our compliance with the scheme further provides our buyers with an audited guarantee that our full production cycle – from the producers and processing of wine to the recycling of waste products and packaging materials - is undertaken with due consideration of the environment, and that our wine is produced in an environmentally responsible manner that is safe for the consumer.
