Anri considered studying medicine, but decided against it as she would not have been able to freely express her artistic side as she is now able to do in her career as winemaker. She obtained her BSc Agric degree from the University of Stellenbosch in 2013 and subsequently started working at Bellingham as Junior winemaker whilst completing her MScAgric part time. Anri has been a part of the Wandsbeck family since 2016 and has never looked back.
When asked about her wine philosophy, she answered with a poem:
"Daar is ‘n blanke kanvas in elke tenk
en dis wyn wat aan ons kunstenaars verf skenk:
‘n Pinotage Picasso!
‘n Petit Verdot Van Gogh!
Hoe meer ek skilder met die wyn
voel ek hoe my bedenkings verdwyn,
want elke blanke kanvas behoort aan my
van elke kleur en geur!"
