Winemaker at Lothian Vineyards / Boer and Brit

How old are you?


Do you live on site?


Does your family help out?

Yes - mainly drinking the wine.
My wife makes olive oil and deli products so we run stands together

What pets does the winery have?

I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback called Juliet who goes everywhere with me and especially likes fresh grapes. She is a good indicator of when to harvest.

What is your favourite and least favourite part of the wine making process?

We all realised that making wine is easy and that the difficult art is selling it.

Best is meeting interesting people and visiting interesting places.

Do you use any quirky techniques?

Listening to Jack Johnson and smoking cigars while crushing.

Have you always made wine? What would you do if you didn't make wine?

Yes. My family is heavily into wine grape farming

What is your favourite grape to work with and why?

It was Chardonnay but recently I think Pinot Noir is.

What's the best wine you've ever tasted?

1996 Paul Sauer - Kannonkop

What is the best music to make wine to?

Jack Johnson
