What are these wines about?
I make all kinds of wines, and I will not be tied down to a certain style or category. I make wines people like, not wines I want people to like.
The range is eclectic just like the winemaker.
Currently there are several ranges, that were born from different parents, and with different goals in mind. I make the Louis range of wines, Black Forest, Buckleberry and Collaboration together with Chefs Craig Cormack and Bertus Basson, as well as wines for private clients.
I was born in Paarl, and having been surrounded by vineyards making winemaking a career seemed quite obvious. I love the technical side, but think of myself as an artist as well, so having both disciplines in the same profession suited me very well.
I studied winemaking at the University of Stellenbosch, and graduated in 1992. I then worked harvests overseas in France and America, and also worked at Vergelegen, Neil Ellis, Warwick and Hidden Valley before I went on my own.
I became a member of the Cape Winemakers Guild in 2006, and I am very honoured to be amongst this small group of wonderful winemakers. Have a look at the website www.capewinemakersguild.com for more information.
