Wilhelm de Vries

Allesverloren Wine Estate
Wilhelm de Vries - a winemaker of the Koelenhof-de Vries lineage - his wife Marisa, and their two children Linder and Imma, moved to Malmesbury, just in time for the 2016 harvest at Allesverloren, the oldest cellar in the Swartland.

Wilhelm finished his B.Sc Agriculture (Viticulture and Winemaking) at the University of Stellenbosch in 2000, after which he joined Koelenhof Wine Cellar as the head red wine
maker for the next 15 harvests. It was here that he manifested the De Vries family’s love for winemaking and the wine business. Wilhelm has been a seasonal wine maker in both American and French vineyards, and has gained valuable experience from participating in international wine shows. He has also been involved in the marketing of South African wines in China.
