‘Karusa’ is a Khoi-San word meaning ‘land with little water’ – describing the semi-arid plateau of the Klein Karoo.

Karusa is a family operated and managed wine and fruit farm.

Karusa is run by family business partners Jacques Conradie (Winemaker/ marketing), Saretha Conradie (PRO), Theo Landman (Estate Manager) and property owner Johann Landman (Business Consultant).

Karusa is situated at the foothills of the majestic Swartberg in the tranquil and scenic Cango Valley in Schoemanshoek, close to Oudtshoorn. The farm is en-route to the world-famous Cango Caves.

The original farm, Vogelsang, was bought in 2004. A total soil and climate research project was undertaken to give a better understanding of the terroir of the farm. We used this information to make decisions on the planting of cultivars and clonal selections best suited to the area as well as streamlining existing orchard management.

Karusa is the first and only Premium Private winery in Oudtshoorn.
