Danie Schoeman had spend his childhood at this family farm and has studied BSC Agriculture at the University of Stellenbosch after matric. Thereafter he returned to the farm and took over from his father, Jurie.

Danie says that, for him, the best thing about winemaking is to work with variables and to be able to create and be creative with the grapes in order to produce a product of note that can be seen and tasted.

Quality grapes produce quality wine and in the expectation, anticipation and eventually surprise, the finished product, is there for him a parallel with the making of a masterpiece.
