Vrede, Kromvlei and De Hoop
The Karsten Group is known as a grower that produces a large volume of grapes in the early part of the season. Based on their marketing strategy and demand from clients for grapes during the latter part of the season, it was decided to lengthen the season by producing ideal varieties in the Western Cape, and more specifically in the Piketberg and Hex River Valley areas. During 2012, The Karsten Group established itself in these two areas, and is already exporting from the late areas, supplying grapes throughout the South African season. All farms have their own packing facilities.
