Louwritz Louw

Red Winemaker
Louwritz Louw joined KWV in 2012 as the team’s red wine maker, a duty which also includes looking after the company’s coveted fortified wines.

Louw studied Oenology at the University of Stellenbosch and joined Nuy Winery in Worcester after graduation. Here he gained experience across the full scope of winemaking processes, supporting it with valuable international vintage experience in France. 

As a winemaker Louw prefers not to limit his interest to one grape variety, or a single region: “the biggest highlight for during my time at KWV is the ability to work with grapes from all terroirs across SA”.
