I was born in Barrydale in the Klein Karoo. After completing matric I travelled to the UK for a year where I worked on farms and toured through Europe. I then studied Viticulture at Elsenburg Agricultural College from 1997-1999 and in 2000 I started my career in the wine industry. I am a “down to earth” type of person with a great passion for life, nature and wine. My hobbies include fishing, hunting and spending time with family and friends.
I am a well organised person in everything I do.
During harvesting season our valley paints a 1000 pictures of early morning sunrises over the vineyards and this inspires me to achieve success as winemaker. The Robertson Wine Valley produces some of the best quality wines available and I am proud of being part of this success.
I believe in working together as a team, winemaking is like a team sport from preparing the soil to the final labelled product.
Whilst striving for perfection in the wines I make, it makes it easier with the excellent quality of grapes grown and delivered by Goedverwacht Family Wines.
