My journey towards the art of winemaking was inspired by my father and guided by Jan Boland Coetzee. Through his patience and with his mentorship I have started my journey, exploring the diversity of Stellenbosch, the haunting beauty of Pinot Noir and the elegance and refinement of Chardonnay. My journey has taken me to France to refine my skill with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. I have travelled to the heart of British Columbia to savour different nuances of Pinot Noir and to gain experience with delicate white varietals. Yet I know that my journey has just begun, many different horizons await me in the future as I explore my art, but I know for a fact that my heart resides at the foot of the Stellenbosch mountain, at Vriesenhof.
