Bertho van der Westhuizen is only the fifth winemaker in the estate’s 100-year history and took the reins from his father Schalk in 2015. A tall, humble man with a jovial demeanour, Bertho is keenly aware of the history that precedes him.
It was perhaps inevitable that he would embark on a career in wine. Circumstances led to Bertho being born in a wine cellar not far from his current workplace.
