About

Tharo Wine is a family-owned business supplying quality products and services to the wine and food industry. It represents top European suppliers of barrels and wood-alternatives locally. The service includes admin and support from order to delivery at your doorstep.

Currently the French cooperages Boutes and Garonnaise are represented as well as the exclusive Austrian cooperage, Stockinger. Boutes and Garonnaise supply our quality French oak tank staves. Tharo wine also supplies UV-related products widely used for sterilization purposes in the food and wine industry. Components for these products are sourced locally and abroad to ensure the best quality at a cost effective price.

The word “THARO” is Tswana for three – impersonating the three members involved in the business – Wynand, Hazel and Pieter Hamman. Wynand Hamman, an Oenology graduate from the Elsenburg Agricultural College, uses his knowledge and skills of more than 25 years, obtained while working for various wineries (Backsberg, Klawer, Lanzerac, Lourensford and Fryer’s Cove Vineyards) to market and supply a comprehensive service to clients. His is also liaising directly with suppliers ensuring the client with a product “custom made” for his specific needs.

Wife, Hazel, an Oenology graduate from the University of Stellenbosch and son Pieter, tend to administration and logistics.
