He manages the Ingwe estate on a day-to-day basis and applies his professional skills to nuture the vines to yield grapes of the utmost quality and flavour.

The Winemaker
Young Winemaker, PJ Geyer is an adventurer too, and passionate: (Moueix hired him because “he talked about making wine with sensitivity, not from a recipe”. He gained his winemaking skills in both new world (the USA and New Zealand) and old world (Pomerol, France) cellars. He joined Ingwe in 2002 and is dedicated to capturing the fine flavours of the grapes in the wine and blending each wine to perfection.
