The Cooperage

Anura Vineyards. The Cooperage. Our artisanal event space. 

The Cooperage is the latest addition to the Anura Collection. An architectural masterpiece of space and light, with its contemporary industrial style finishes, comprising of stone, concrete, steel and rare African wood, encompassing 360 degree views of the Simonsberg mountain range, vineyards and water. As the name suggests, much like the work of a barrel cooper, The Cooperage is our hand-crated, artisanal event space. The Cooperage has the ability to transform to your needs, whatever your event design may be.


The Cooperage has been designed in such a way as to accommodate anything from 40 to 300 guests seated, or conservatively, up to 850 guests cocktail style, without compromising atmosphere, acoustics or use of space. By using our design-complimented screens, make use of as much space, or as little space as your event requires.

The lawns surrounding The Cooperage are able to accommodate extensive temporary structures, should you require space for a very large event or festival. Anura Vineyards has parking capacity for up to 1500 vehicles at a time.

Coopers Bar and deck:

Included in the venue is Cooper’s Bar - an elegant, suave and charismatic bar. Unique elements, such as wine barrels suspended from the ceiling, raw copper finishes and exposed light bulbs, makes this space ideal to use as is, no décor required, for more intimate events.
