My journey in the wine industry started 2003/4 when I was employed as a harvest intern at Swartland Winery. I subsequently enrolled at the Cape Institute of Agricultural Training: Elsenburg, where I graduated in 2007. After graduation I joined the team at Merwida Winery in Rawsonville as assistant winemaker.
During 2008 I spent four months in the USA’s Napa valley at Newton Vineyards. I returned to the US in 2010 as a Seasonal Assistant Winemaker at Le Crema in the Russian River Valley, California.
For the past decade I have continued to grow and expand in my knowledge and experience as a Winemaker. After working at Amani Vineyards in Stellenbosch, I moved on to Arra Vineyards in Paarl, where I had been employed as viticulturist and winemaker for the past four years. I am privileged to have recently joined the dynamic team at Bonnievale.
